93 Pts Ian Dagata - Vinous Media

"Bright ruby. Subtly perfumed aromas of red cherry, dark plum, violet, mint and sweet spices. Smooth, sexy and sweet on the palate, with harmonious acidity giving a light touch to the ripe red fruit, mineral and mocha flavors. Perhaps best today on the very long aftertaste, which features serious but ripe tannins and lingering rich, ripe red and black fruit flavors. This is one of the stars of the vintage and is much better than the Brunello normale; it's everything you could ask of a Brunello in 2008."

92 Pts Wine Spectator

"Exhibits fine purity and definition, with cherry, raspberry and floral flavors. Tightens up on the finish, revealing plenty of sweet fruit and a metallic element on the long aftertaste. Best from 2016 through 2035. 100 cases imported. -BS"

92 Pts James Suckling - Jamessuckling.com

"Wonderful aromas of ripe strawberries with hints of hazelnuts. Full body, with well-integrated tannins, ripe fruit and fresh acidity. Juicy finish. Drink or hold."

92 Pts Antonio Galloni - Vinous

"The estate's top selection, the 2008 Brunello di Montalcino Madonna delle Grazie, is plush, rich and authoritative. At the same time, though, it isn't materially better or more complex than the straight bottling, but rather a darker wine with bolder, bigger texture. Rose petals, licorice, sweet red berries and game linger on the powerful, incisive finish."

91 Pts Wine Enthusiast

"This Brunello Selezione epitomizes the clean, polished and easygoing style of the 2008 vintage. The wine shows a savory side with aromas of cured meat and dried herb, as well as a bold fruit side with plush cherry and blackberry. The acidity is high, but is also balanced out by its natural density and rich texture."


"Il Marroneto was founded in 1974 by Giuseppe Mori. Son Alessandro Mori joined the estate immediately, creating the first vintage in 1980. The estate is located in the higher elevations of the cooler northern zone of Montalcino, and is one of the older estates in the appellation. Traditional in style and adhering to a philosophy of minimal intervention in the vineyard and cellar, Il Marroneto foregoes conventional methods. Focusing on the health of the vine through spacing and nutrient-rich topsoil, Mori eschews the use of chemicals, allows only native ferments and ages in large oak cask.

Alessandro Mori’s Brunellos are some of the most long-lived in Montalcino. Madonna delle Grazie is the 13th century church on the estate for which it takes its name. The estate’s 5.8 hectares have been planted in stages: The first 10% in the 1975, an additional 10% in the 1977, and the rest in the winter between 1982-1983. Elevation of the vineyard sits at 400 meters above sea level, and soils are an intricate mix of mostly sand large stone of limestone and galestro.

This wine is produced from a special selection of Sangiovese to create the estate’s “grand cru” Brunello, first bottled in 2000. The 35-year old vines have been planted with ample vine spacing of 3400 per hectare. Twenty day native ferments are standard, with pump overs when Alessandro decides. The wine is aged in 2600-liter French cask for 41 months, and further refined in bottle for six months. Alessandro no longer produces a Brunello Riserva bottling." - Importer
