Wine Critic Reviews:

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...

Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 94+ RP
Mastrojanni's 2015 Brunello di Montalcino presents a complex, dark, and earthy display of ripe black cherries that gives way to dusty, dried florals, spice box, crushed stone and hints of animal musk. On the palate, silky textures and pure Sangiovese fruit collect beneath resonating earth tones, all supported by a web of minerals and tannin. The finish is long and youthfully structured, yet the wine maintains terrific freshness.

Vinous Media | 94 VM
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. 120 cases imported.

Wine Spectator | 93 WS
Reaching over 400 metres, Mastrojanni's vineyards gaze southeast to southwest towards the Monte Amiata. While summer days are particularly warm, nighttime temperatures typically drop by 15°C. Harnessing all the heat of the vintage, this is loaded with rich, sumptuous fruit but retains relative freshness despite intense ripeness. Plum and black cherry are nuanced by smoky mint and cardamom. It's equally charged with assertive tannins which are caressing rather than drying. Drinking Window 2021 - 3031

Decanter | 92 DEC
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.

Country Italy: What are the first things that come to mind when thinking about Italy and Italian culture? There's one thing that nearly everyone tends to mention, it's the food - and where there's fine food, there is almost always fine wine. Italy is the most prolific wine region in the world, outclassing even France in terms of production quantity. Even if you're a complete wine novice, you have almost certainly heard of names such as Barolo and Barbaresco, Italy's most famous wine styles. When it comes to soil composition and other geographical characteristics, Italy offers a lot of diversity, and this never fails to show in the wines themselves.

Region Tuscany: Italian culture worships the concept of a shared meal, and their wines scream for a chance to be uncorked with your friends and family. The region's Mediterranean climate and hilly landscape combine to create a beautiful viticultural environment, where every chosen grape is brought to its full potential and transmuted into drinks worthy of gods. The vineyards are planted along the higher reaches of the hill slopes, creating a gorgeous view of the Italian landscape. Once your lips kiss the wine, you're sent spiraling down a veritable whirlpool of pure flavor, touching upon notes of sensuous cherry, nuts, floral hints and undertones of honey and minerals. The wines can be as sweet as a fresh summer romance, and carry an air of dignity and elegance about them that can stimulate your intellect for months as you contemplate the seemingly infinite intricacies and details in the texture. Tuscany is an important part of Italian viticulture, and sampling their wines is the closest you can get to visiting this heavenly region and experiencing the culture.
Type of Wine Brunello: As you indulge in some fine Brunello, and you gaze into the deep brown elixir, your tongue will almost pulsate with excitement, as rich flavors of black cherry, chocolate, black raspberry, and blackberry are woven together like a heartfelt poem. An earthy, leathery undertone provides excellent contrast next to all the fruit, rounding out the experience .
