IL Marroneto Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2018
Sangiovese from Brunello di Montalcino, Italy – 750ml
Vineyard NotesThe vineyards of Il Marroneto extend on the north slope of the hill, about 350m high, in the immediate vicinity of the walls of Montalcino. The first 3000 meters of vineyard were planted in 1975, then, as many in 1979 and finally in 1984, the last 9, 000. The vines of Il Marroneto are arranged so that each plant has available 3.6 square meters, allowing the vine Sangiovese, which feeds on the surface, to have space for a good rooting. The management of the vineyard, then, is based on a traditional and minimalist philosophy that borrows practices and systems used in respect of the plants, treating the vines the bare minimum and avoiding intensive production. From here the practice of natural grassing, that allows to control the vigor of the vines, with longer times of pollination and pruning in March, leaving the plants the time needed to rest.
WinemakingWe produce wines that reflect the purity, complexity and character of grapes grown exclusively from the Napanook vineyard. This unique provenance qualifies our wines as estate-bottled, a rarely found designation. The character of a wine is defined by the grapes at harvest. With our extensive efforts in the vineyard, once we have the grapes in hand, our winemaking practice is minimalist: - Thorough cluster sorting by hand. - Optical sorting of berries. - Gentle pump-overs delicately extract aromas, color, tannin, and reveal the personality of each lot. - Hand-racking barrel to barrel every three months using the esquive.
