Brunello di Montalcino Madonna Delle Grazie. Il Marroneto 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

“The purest and most profound expression of Sangiovese on the market today, the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Madonna delle Grazie is a monumental achievement. It represents the pinnacle of varietal perfection from one of the best vintages on record in Montalcino. The wine opens to a beautifully saturated ruby color with vibrant crimson highlights. It shows an enormous sense of inner energy and vitality characteristic only of the best quality grapes. It continues to deliver crisp tones of small forest berry, pressed violets, wet earth, white truffle, licorice, balsam herb and all the other lovely aromas that are so distinctive in wines from this stunning part of Tuscany. The tannins are firm and linear, adding a great sense of support at the back and lingering persistency. The wine is profoundly beautiful today and shows all the criteria necessary for 20 years or more of cellar aging. Brunello Madonna Delle Grazie represents the enormous promise of Montalcino…100” WA 02/15 "Il Marroneto's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Madonna delle Grazie hits the palate with dark red cherries, kirsch, mint, lavender, hard candy, flowers and cinnamon. The flavors are exotic, perfumed and juicy in a head-turning, structured Brunello that is shaping up to be one of the wines of the year. Constantly changing in the glass, the 2010 will thrill readers for the next two decades-plus. ..97" AG 02/15 "Bright and pure, offering cherry, raspberry, spice and underbrush flavors. Features ample tannins, ripe and mouthcoating, but the beam of acidity drives the fruit, mineral and spice flavors to a lingering conclusion. Combines power and finesse...95" WS 06/15
