You just can't beat the purity of the bouquet here: cherries, red licorice, blue flowers and currants. It's all stunning. Il Marroneto's 2015 Brunello di Montalcino opens to a light garnet color with faint ruby highlights. The wine never veers from its lanes, sticking to an absolutely traditional and fresh expression from the appellation. It offers a lean to medium-weight mouthfeel with radiant fruit flavors—think pure cherry fruit. Fruit is harvested from a five-hectare parcel at 300 meters above sea level with calcareous sand and Galestro soils. These conditions lead to the aromatic intensity of the wine, and that's the main takeaway in this classic vintage. There is a moment of softness that expands quickly over the palate. These results are graceful and gorgeous. Some 23,569 bottles were made. This wine was bottled in June 2019, and it hit the market in January 2020.
Monica Larner - Wine Advocate (Feb 2020)
Il Marroneto's 2015 Brunello di Montalcino presents one of the prettiest expressions of fresh, ripe strawberries that I can recall, complemented by hints of subtle sweet spice, leather, and cedar dust, while also gaining further depth the longer it sits in the glass. On the palate, soft textures are offset by zesty red fruits and hints of Tuscan spice-box, with red florals punctuate the experience. The finish leans more to the savory side. A twang of brisk acids tugs at the senses, hints of fine tannin settle in, and sweet spices linger long. The balance here is remarkable in this wonderfully pure and pretty expression of Sangiovese.
