Il Marroneto Ignaccio Rosso di Montalcino 2018


In Stock

“The 2018 Rosso di Montalcino Ignaccio is flat-out delicious with a woodland and almost-autumnal profile. Wild strawberries, blueberries, lavender and sage mix with hints of cinnamon and flowery undergrowth. It’s silky-smooth, almost velvety in feel yet perfectly balanced and full of life, displaying ripe wild berry fruit and inner violet florals. There’s enough structure here to carry the 2018 for a number of years in the cellar, but who can keep their hands off of it today? Alessandro Mori selects his Rosso from the same barrels he uses to make Brunello, yet after only a year of aging. Drinking window: 2020-2026. 93 points

Alessandro Mori’s Rosso di Montalcino Ignaccio achieves that same jovial and pure fruit personality of the Brunellos, yet with a sheer drinkability factor that makes it very difficult to stop at just one glass. The reason for this is that it is basically declassified Brunello juice aged for only one year in barrel and six months in bottle prior to release. The Ignaccio is dangerously delicious.”
