Brunello di Montalcino DOCG - Mastrojanni

The result of a vintage that was marked by a short summer and a sunny and dry September, with considerable temperature swings, Mastrojanni's Brunello di Montalcino is a confirmation of a great winery that for decades has been able to offer wines of high quality. It rests for 36 months in Allier oak barrels, to tell a story made up of noble tannins, powerful structure and great acidic finesse. It is not just any Brunello, able to exalt the terroir from which it comes, and also able to remind us of the excellence hidden in the lands of the Ilcinesi.

The year was 1975, when the Roman lawyer Gabriele Mastrojanni began to write history, choosing to purchase the San Pio and Loreto estates in the Ilcinesi lands, at a time when there were very few wine producers in Montalcino. From the beginning, the intentions were clear: to transform those steep, rugged slopes into the home of Sangiovese Grosso, in order to produce the best wine in all of Montalcino. A few years later the bet was won in full, and from the very first vintages the Brunello bearing the "Mastrojanni" label proved to be refined and elegant, extremely faithful to its terroir and of excellent quality. International consecration came in the 1990s, thanks also to the entrance of the lawyer's son, Antonio Mastrojanni in the company, who chose the oenologist Maurizio Castelli to work with him. The latter is still the winery’s reference point today. Andrea Marchetti also joined the team in 1992 to follow the evolution of the company full time, covering the important role of managing director. In those years, with the construction of the winemaking cellar and the construction of the aging rooms, the winery’s production philosophy was also created: the use of cement for fermentation, which ensures thermal stability and absence of magnetic fields, then rigorous selection of grapes, with a meticulous thinning out towards the end of August, and finally early harvesting of the more mature grapes, so as to obtain a wine that will form the acid base to be mixed with the wine from the final harvest. A few simple, essential rules, but which are still scrupulously followed today, to continue to guarantee a product of the highest quality. Finally, we come to 2008, the year that marks a further turning point for the Mastrojanni winery, with the purchase of the estate by the Illy Group s.p.a., renowned for its coffee roasting business, but at the time also already owner of the Podere le Ripi winery, bordering the Mastrojanni estate. The management changed, therefore, but in a sort of inseparable continuity, from Rosso di Montalcino to Brunello, up to the cru "Vigna Loreto" and "Schiena d'Asino", the wines always seem to be the same, inimitable and timeless, as the ones Gabriele Mastrojanni himself had conceived them back in 1975.

    The Mastrojanni 2015 Brunello di Montalcino has a succulent or meaty quality that adds to the overall intensity of the wine. You get rich fruit, baking spice and even a touch of rum cake. The wine is dark and velvety in appearance, and the mouthfeel is robust and concentrated. I love the full-bodied appeal and power of this wine. It has seamlessly captured the spirit of the vintage. Its approach is immediate, and you can enjoy this wine without waiting too much longer. The mouthfeel is lean, snappy and smooth. Fruit comes from a 14.4-hectare vineyard with south-facing exposures and clay soils with lots of broken rock shards.

    Wow. What a gorgeous Brunello with complex and beautiful aromas and flavors of cherries, flowers, walnuts and berries. It’s full-bodied, yet so polished and refined with soft, creamy tannins that are long and linear at the end. It goes on for minutes. Drinkable now, but better in 2022.

    Forest floor, scorched earth, grilled herb and exotic spice aromas form the nose. On the full-bodied palate, firm fine-grained tannins accompany dried black cherry, orange zest, licorice and a hint of coconut before a warm, rather lean black-tea finish. Drink after 2025. KERIN O’KEEFE

  • Wine Spectator 93

    Round and supple, with good cut framing the cherry, plum, loam, iron and saline flavors. Tightly wound and firm, featuring ripe fruit, mineral and earth notes that linger. Elegant and complex. Best from 2022 through 2040.
