    • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2012

      Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2012

      Brunello 2012 by Mastrojanni seduces with beautiful charisma, intensity and finesse. Characterful bouquet of sweet cherries, Mediterranean herbs, smoke and tobacco. The splendid fruit and the tightly woven tannins are carried by a light acidity. Very good storage potential. SUPERIORE.DE

      "A multi-facetted nose of plums, leather and tobacco; juicy in the mouth, the acidity perceptible, the tannin well integrated, racy and powerful, without forgetting the finesse." Vinum

      "A very typical Brunello with berry and tobacco character plus hints of cedar. Full-bodied, chewy and tannic. Needs time to soften and come together. Savory wine." James Suckling

      "Mid ruby with bright bricky rim. Open, red-fruit nose and solid fruit palate. Grainy tannins that are a little demanding right now. Building up in complexity on the finish." Jancis Robinson

      "Beautifully saturated and dark, the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino offers a distinctively sophisticated personality. There's an air of nobility that is natural to Brunello, but that comes in limited supply in this warm vintage. You definitely get it here. The wine's bouquet offers a compelling medley of dark fruit tones that shift into savory spicy and balsam herb. Those automatic transitions are smooth and seamless. Another nice quality of the wine is that no one element overpowers or overshadows the other. It offers a great sense of balance. This wine has many cards to play and I am confident it will play them well over the next ten years of its evolution." Robert Parker

      "Luminous red. Highly complex nose offers aromas of red cherry, raspberry, flint and violet, plus a touch of beef bouillon; this is a candidate for the most complex nose of the vintage. Then textbook Sangiovese flavors of flinty red cherries, licorice and minerals. Long and clean on the perfumed, highly mineral finish." Ian d’Agata (vinous.com)

    • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2013

      Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2013

      Characterful bouquet of sweet cherries, Mediterranean herbs, smoke and tobacco. The splendid fruit and the tightly woven tannins are carried by a light acidity. Mastrojannis Brunello of the Year 2013 seduces with wonderful charisma, intensity and finesse. Very good storage potential. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Quite dark red; with aeration fruit, gum, dried fruit, depth; round base, juicy acidity, fine, length, round tannin." Merum

      "Plenty of dried fruits on the nose with cedar and flowers that follow through to a full body, layered tannins and an intense finish. Hints of raisins." James Suckling

      "This is plump, with cherry, plum, iron and tobacco flavors, nicely balanced by a dense matrix of tannins. Tips slightly toward the dry side on the finish, yet stays fresh and long." Wine Spectator

      "Mastrojanni's 2013 Brunello di Montalcino reveals a very precise and focused aromatic profile. This is a signature touch from this outstanding estate that, year in and year out, produces some of the best Brunello you can buy. Wild berries and cherries rise from the bouquet in an elegant flutter. Those tones are followed by spice, leather, rosemary and medicinal herb. The wine is streamlined, polished and smooth in terms of mouthfeel." Robert Parker

      "Bright ruby-red. Aromas of raspberry, red currant and fresh herbs are complicated by roast coffee, licorice and mocha. Plush, pliant and sweet, offering seductive red berry, coffee and tobacco flavors lifted by a candied violet note. The long, smooth but vibrant finish features sweet tannins, a whiff of herbs and outstanding length." Antonio Galloni

      "Agronomist/oenologist Andrea Machetti has been managing this property since 1992, although it was purchased by the Illy coffee group in 2008. The vineyards are close to Castelnuovo dell'Abate, where the soil is predominantly clay with a complex mix of marine salt, tuff, river pebbles and sand. Besides flavours of tobacco, dried sage and forest berries, this has a saline edge and a tanginess that gives plenty of vibrancy and length. Nicely framed by well-managed tannins." Decanter

      "Mid ruby with bright, bricky tinges. Balsamic and almost a little medicinal on the nose. Ripe, concentrated fruit tightly packed with fine, grainy tannins. Impressive balance, staying power and youth." Jancis Robinson

    • Brunello di Montalcino "Vigna Loreto" DOCG 2011

      Brunello di Montalcino “Vigna Loreto” DOCG 2011

      Breathtaking, dark and powerful is the 2011 Vigna Loreto with complex personality. Silky and slender, polished tannin and perfectly dosed oak spice. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Brilliant, intense ruby with garnet red. Attractive and accessible nose, smells intensely of ripe cherries, pomegranate and plums, in the background some leather. Soft and round in the attack and course, fine-meshed tannin, much sweet enamel, but quite ripe at the back, slightly caramel notes." Falstaff

      "Round and rich with beautiful decadent fruit and richness. Orange peel. Full and juicy. Itnese fruit and dried fruit and beauty. Sexy!" James Suckling

      "The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna Loreto offers a bright berry bouquet and soft richness in the mouth. This single vineyard that exists on a slope adjacent to the winery has absorbed more of the 2011 summer heat. You feel that warmth in the quality of the fruit on display here. The bouquet is redolent of ripe cherry, plum, cassis, leather and spice. The finish is opulent and round. This is a fine medium-term Brunello that is approachable now." Robert Parker

      Brunello di Montalcino “Vigna Loreto” DOCG 2012

      Brunello Vigna Loreto 2012 with smoky bouquet and hearty aromas of herbs and graphite. Dense and compact on the palate. Deep dark, ripe fruit, well structured with silky tannins and long intense finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "A tight and compressed ripe wine with spices, berries and ripe fruit. Medium body, a solid core of fruit and a long and flavorful finish. Subtle and structured." James Suckling

      "Rich, full of cherry and raspberry fruit and augmented by tobacco, spice and mineral flavors. Harmonious and long, this has all the elements to age well and develop greater complexity and nuance." Wine Spectator

      "The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna Loreto sees fruit sourced from a vineyard site located on a sunny, east-facing slope just in front of the new winery. The well-draining limestone soils make for even ripening of fruit and contribute to the wine's rich suppleness. Dried cherry and blackberry segues to spice, cured leather, tar and cola. The wine is darkly concentrated and powerful." Robert Parker

      "Good full red. Intense aromas of red cherry, sweet spices, coffee and herbs; this is richer and deeper than the classico Brunello. Then more austere on the palate and less forthcoming presently than that wine, with minerally red cherry and forest floor flavors. Finishes very long, clean and very saline. This will repay cellaring for a decade or so." Ian d’Agata (vinous.com)

      "Shiny ruby garnet. Attractive nose with nicely ripened fruit notes, of dark cherries, some pickled plums, lots of blackberries, in the background fine cloves. On the palate much fine-meshed tannin, very well integrated, appears polished and clear, crisp cherry, echoes long after." Falstaff

      "A juicy wine with a wealth of dried cherry and hints of watermelon. Orange peel, too. Full body, layered and delicious." James Suckling

      "Round and saturated with cherry, strawberry, leather, iron and earth flavors, this red is vivid and well-built. It's focused too, with a long earth, underbrush and mineral aftertaste." Wine Spectator

      "The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna Loreto is a darkly saturated and finely textured expression of Sangiovese from a cool and graceful vintage. The bouquet sings loud with dark cherry and blackberry followed by spice, leather and cured tobacco. There are plenty of balsam and floral highlights to add subtle detailing at the back. This is a great example of the elegance achieved in 2013." Robert Parker

      "Mid ruby with bright bricky tinges. Tight and closed on the nose and equally slow to open up on the palate. Depth and complexity on the finish with juicy acidity and grainy tannins." Jancis Robinson

    About the winemakers
    Mastrojanni
    Tuscany | Montalcino
    Mastrojanni

    To press a Brunello with the fruit and elegance of a Bordeaux - this was the declared aim of the former Roman lawyer Gabriele Mastrojanni. The lover of wines from the Bordelais therefore founded an azienda south of the hilltop town of Montalcino in the most beautiful natural surroundings not far from Castelnuovo dell'Abate and started making wine himself. Since 1992 Andrea Machetti has been responsible for the renowned estate as Managing Director - first for Mastrojanni and later for the new owner, the Illy family. The coffee roasters from Trieste took over the winemaking business in 2008, after they had already taken over the Italian chocolate manufacturer Domori and the Parisian tea house Dammann. Francesco Illy, one of four grandsons of the company founder, has been working in the picturesque Tuscan wine village since 1997.

    It is largely thanks to Machetti's enthusiasm that the historic winery, run today by Antonio Mastrojanni, has remained true to its tradition to this day. As a top oenologist, the soul of the famous wine house is supported by its long-standing friend Maurizio Castelli. The very loose, loamy and calcareous soils, the terrain protected from climatic attacks by Monte Amiata, the ideal south-southeast locations and a late harvest of perfect grapes regularly produce wines that have even gained in strength, clarity and concentration since the complete renewal of the plots by the new owners and the technical improvements in the cellar.

    Main variety of Mastrojanni is and remains the Sangiovese for Brunello di Montalcino as well as the super drops Schiena d'Asino and Vigna Loreto (which is built in bigger barrels). In addition, a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon is reserved for the Cuvée San Pio. It is not until later that the estate decides which layers are to be used for Brunello or Rosso. Since the Rosso of the house also has a very high density and intensity, it would be insufficiently characterized as a base wine.

    The Illy family has mainly invested in the basement. Fermentation plants were renewed and many medium-sized barrels were purchased. The style of the house is typical for the southwest of the Montalcino growing area: the wines are rich in extracts and tannins, and they are still a little rough when they are young. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Andrea Machetti's confirmation at the head of the company is a clear signal of continuity, which can be found in the charismatic Brunello: substantial, tasty wines, as can be found in the vineyards of Castelnuovo dell' Abate can expect, but at the same time proud and limited to the essentials."Gambero Rosso
