Vintage Notes: 2015 was a great vintage for Mastrojanni, allowing them to produce all three of their top Brunellos.

Winemaking Notes: The Sangiovese vinifies in concrete tanks. The wine matures for 36 months in neutral Allier oak barrels of 16, 33 and 54 hectoliters in size. The Brunello always ages for a minimum of 6 months in bottle before release.

Tasting Notes: The wine with a deep and intense color, result of a generous summer, opens in a wide and visceral sip with overlapping plum and red fruits, notes of tobacco, embellished by a puff of leather, chocolate, and varied spice. It offers itself with frankness with an intense entrance that ends pleasantly tannic and savory. Pair with game, lamb, grilled red meat and mature cheese.

94pts (2016 Vintage) Wine Spectator 3/3/2021
"The core of cherry and plum flavors is framed by tar, earth and tobacco in this robust red, whose ripe fruit stands up easily to the foundation of drying, dusty tannins. Fruit, earth and iron accents converge on the finish. Put this away for a few years. Best from 2025 through 2048."

    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.

    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.

    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.
