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.
 
Production of the single vineyard Schiena d'Asino Brunello is small at only 5,000 bottles

"Good full red. Captivating nose combines floral red berries and super ripe red cherries lifted by a mineral nuance. Sweet, dense and suave, with precise flavors of red cherry and dried herbs supported by assertive, somewhat drying tannins. The finish is long and a bit warm, with returning super ripe notes of red fruit. This is a luscious ripe fruit bomb but with serious depth and complexity lurking beneath all that glossy fruit. And it's faithful to the warmer terroirs in the southern sections of Montalcino." - Ian D'Agata
