About Il Marroneto
Il Marroneto was founded by Giuseppe Mori and together with his sons, Alessandro and Andrea Mori, both lawyers, they made their first vintage in 1980, yielding a modest 1,855 bottles. Since then, their estate has grown to the current 5.8 hectares. As the winemaker, Alessandro takes the traditional approach of minimal intervention approach, producing some of the most long-lived Brunellos “along the lines of those made by Biondi-Santi and Costanti” (Ian D’Agata, Vinous). Il Marronetos' vineyards sit roughly 400m above sea level, providing the coolness to retain acidity and freshness in its fruit.
