Il Marroneto Madonna delle Grazie miglior Brunello 2011 per Parker
Madonna delle Grazie miglior Brunello 2011 per Parker
5 marzo 2016
“This Brunello comes from one of the finest single vineyards in the Montalcino
appellation. Last year, I awarded this wine 100 points. This year, I encountered many
similar characteristics to remind me of that unforgettable masterpiece. The 2011
Brunello di Montalcino Madonna delle Grazie is an excellent wine that offers
enormous variety purity with bright berry aromas, pressed violets, wet earth, cola
and powdered licorice. The wine is translucent, brilliant and luminous with bright
ruby highlights. It’s a medium-bodied expression with grace, buoyancy and
enormous integrity. If you love Sangiovese, you will adore Madonna delle Grazie.
Madonna delle Grazie is to Sangiovese what the Chapel of St. Christopher on the
hill of Hermitage is to Syrah (except on a much smaller scale). This exceptional
vineyard site on the steep, northern side of the appellation belongs to vintner
Alessandro Mori who has recently emerged as one of the most talented winemakers
in Montalcino. His expertise resides in his ability to allow Sangiovese to find its own
voice. This is no small feat. His quality fruit, old vines and non-interventionist
winemaking style are the secret to his success. There are no bells or whistles. Last
year, I awarded the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Madonna delle Grazie a perfect
100-point score. This year, the 2011 edition of the wine rated 96 points, but it was
among my top two favorite wines of the vintage along with Salvioni’s 2011 Brunello
di Montalcino Cerbaiole“.
