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.

"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."
