Description

The Mastrojanni estate is very close to Mount Amiata, a volcano which became extinct 700,000 years ago and sits at 1738 metres high. Mt Amiata has a great influence on the estate’s microclimate, determining wind patterns and sheltering the area from violent storms. The vineyards look to the south, south-east, some to the south-west, and each has its own geological characteristic.
 
The wine displays plenty of rich cherry fruit, with hints of liquorice and a lovely integration of minerality.
 
91 POINTS - Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate: Mastrojanni's 2014 Brunello di Montalcino (with 39,000 bottles made) opens to a dark garnet color with some amber-crimson hues at the edges. The wine presents a lovely velvety texture that is smooth and silky to the end. The folks at Mastrojanni were forced to make a huge sacrifice in this difficult vintage and they ended up dropping one-third of the fruit. They saved the very best to make Brunello in 2014. Because the cru selections were not produced, fruit from the Vigna Schiena d'Asino and the Vigna Loreto ended up here instead. The wine shows bright aromatic intensity with wild berry, moist earth and grilled herb, but the mouthfeel is compact and streamlined. I recommend a near or medium-term drinking window.
