Such a grand cru, made up with a particular selection of grapes picked from the historical vineyard if the farm, that one that surrounds the house. The name has origin from the little church of 1200 situated very near the vineyard: Madonna delle Grazie; interesting wine in which the delightfulness of the sangiovese join the complexity of the great wine. Superb, sumptuous, fruity, of great impact in nose and mouth.
91 Points - Wine Advocate #211, Feb 2014 “The 2009 Brunello di Montalcino Madonna delle Grazie delivers the impeccable bounty and precision you should expect from Il Marroneto. The wine opens with beautiful dark intensity and ripe notes of dried raspberry and creme de cassis. It definitely shows the ripe side of the warm 2009 vintage. Thanks to a very long period in oak (41 months) the wine shows the merits of slow and careful barrel evolution. Pretty lacings of chopped mint and licorice add freshness and buoyancy to the finish. Drink: 2016-2024.”
