Il Marroneto

The history of Il Marroneto begins in 1974, in two small rooms of a historic building from 1246. An ancient chestnut drying room, where the Mori family begins, partly for fun and partly for passion, to produce the his Brunello. Few bottles, whose purpose was to translate that culture of "making wine" into perfumes and flavors, which was not yet the preserve of bussines, but only an expression of a land, a tradition and a magnificently generous nature. Here the "playing with wine" becomes more than a game: a deep passion, a common thread that guides Alessandro's choices. He decided, in the 90s, to expand the cellar of Il Marroneto, realizing that idea that avoids logic dictated by tout-court aesthetics but which is firmly linked to those principles, in reality very simple and immediate, that the " good practice ”of making wine dictates. A large and austere environment, inserted in a stony slope, houses large oak barrels from Allier and Slavonia, where the Brunellis of Il Marroneto age patiently and a small heart, hidden deep inside, where historic bottles wait patiently the passage of time.
