As tradition dictates, this wine was aged for more than four long years (39 months to be exact) in large oak barrels from France (Allier) and Slovenia.
The majority of vineyards under this estate were planted in 1975, with additional plots added in ’79 and ’84, which means the youngest of Il Marroneto’s vines are no less than 31 years of age!
This estate practices an approach to growing that is best summed up by minimalism. Vines are treated with as little intervention as possible, absolutely NO herbicides are used and grass is encouraged to flourish between the rows.
The winery at Il Marroneto dates back 1246 and was originally used for the drying of local chestnuts. The building is constructed against a stony slope of hillside, which creates the ideal environment for fermentation and aging in oak, and without the aide of modern-day air conditioning!
