Mastrojanni has been writing history in Montalcino with its wines since 1975, and collecting awards from all over the world. Today, thanks to an exceptional terroir and people who have believed in it for decades, Mastrojanni has become one of the most respected Montalcino producers among Brunello collectors. In 1975, a Roman lawyer named Gabriele Mastrojanni bought the San Pio and Loreto estates which had been grazed by sheep and full of beautiful woodlands. Mastrojanni planted his first vineyards here, a territory he believed would produce complex and traditional Montalcino wines.    

Pioneered by Biondi-Santi, other producers before him had also experimented with Sangiovese Grosso and witnessed how the terroir responded: Sangiovese Grosso is the best grape variety for the soil of Montalcino. Wanting to make a great Brunello, Mastrojanni planted almost exclusively Sangiovese vines and, thanks to a unique terroir and passionate work, the winery grew in fame, perhaps even beyond Mastrojanni's initial dream. 

The intense and warm ruby red color anticipates a wide-ranging aroma accompanied by notes of pulpy and ripe fruit enriched by spicy nuances, notes of undergrowth and pleasant balsamic hints. In the mouth a dense and silky tannic texture admirably supported by a fragrant acidity guides with great elegance to a long and persistent finish. Pair with Game, lamb, grilled red meats and mature cheeses.

Delicious and elegantly structured, this gorgeous red offers enticing scents of fragrant blue flowers, forest floor, wild berries and new leather. On the full-bodied palate, taut, fine-grained tannins provide finesse and a polished framework for ripe Morello cherry, crushed raspberry, licorice and the barest hint of mocha. Drink 2023–2029.

Mastrojanni has created my all-time favorite Brunello packaging. A simple white label is embellished with an individually applied red wax seal. The 2017 Brunello di Montalcino is just as beautiful on the inside. This ample 65,000-bottle release absolutely defies the vintage expectations. There's so much vibrant fruit here and freshness. The wine is textured and firm with plenty of creamy weight to soften it out. This is a phenomenal interpretation of the 2017 growing season.

This has depth to its aromas and flavors of black cherry, blackberry, black currant, iron, spice and tobacco. Though vibrant, it also has a layer of firm tannins that provide grip and structure. Features a fine aftertaste of iron, sanguine and tobacco elements. Best from 2024.
