The Il Marroneto name comes from the old chestnut dryer on the estate that was used by the nuns of the Madonna della Grazie Covent.  

Mario Cortevesio and his friend Giulio Gambelli, ‘THE’ two references in all things Sangiovese were very much at the inception of this wine story. They strongly advised Giuseppe and his son Alessandro to make wine at their country house having seen the potential of the vineyard.  Il Marroneto is owned and is run by Alessandro Mori. The first vintage of Il Marroneto was bottled in 1976, Alessandro became the winemaker in charge in 1994. The winery is bordering the town walls of Montalcino, up on the hill at some 400m of altitude. There is a stunning view on the valley. There is just shy of 6ha of vineyards, in 3 locations.
