Il Marroneto Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2011

$49.99

Il Marroneto's 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is one of the wines of the vintage. Silky, open-knit and gracious, the 2011 boasts superb elegance and all of the finesse that is typical of Montalcino's northern sector. Rose petal, sweet red berry and lifted, minty notes grace the palate in a sensual, silky Brunello endowed with class and pedigree. The classic sense of tannin and salinity comes through on the finish, but it is the interplay of classic structure and the ripeness of the vintage that is most compelling of all. Il Marroneto's 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is without question one of the wines of the vintage. Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

I love the elegance and restraint this wine is showing even in 2011. Second time having it with consistent notes

Profoundly beautiful. Burgundy and Felsina fans should take notice of this extremely pretty expression of Sangiovese.

Red fruit and some earth on the nose. This is a big wine with heavy tannins.

One of the best wines I’ve ever drank. Bought this after hearing it was one of the wines of the vintage and I’d have to agree. Elegant wild cherry and strawberry, menthol, dusty road and wild herbs. Takes me back to my travels to Tuscany. Pure and elegant. Wow!
