Il Marroneto Brunello di Montalcino 1997
Sangiovese from Tuscany, Italy
This is a very elegant Brunello. Ruby red in color with a subtle perfume of dry fruit. Soft, smooth and aromatic with just a touch of licorice on the finish. Recommended with roasted red meat and game. Also delicious with aged cheese.
Il Marroneto Winery
Il Marroneto remains the smallest producer of Brunello di Montalcino. When production began in 1980, only 2,000 bottles were produced. Today that number has more than doubled. What this boutique winery lacks in quantity, however, they more than make up for in quality. Housed in a 13th century tower, this winery stands guard over Montalcino. The vineyards circumvent the medieval tower at 1,500 feet above sea level. This is where the wonderful, intensely rich and thick-skinned fruit of is produced for the wines of Il Marroneto.
