Ruby red colour, concentrated and intense to the eye. The nose offers a rich and articulated olfactory bouquet, in which the scents recall ripe berries, plum, cherry jam, liquorice, lavender, leather and spices. In the mouth it is full-bodied, full and juicy, characterised by an enveloping tannic texture, balanced, persistent and pleasantly balsamic in the finish.

Mastrojanni has been writing history with its wines since 1975, collecting prizes all over the world.
And in those years, there were very few who started a wine adventure in Montalcino.
Today, thanks to an exceptional terroir and to men who have believed in it for decades, Mastrojanni is one of the Brunello di Montalcino wineries most respected by connoisseurs.
These places have been sparsely populated and little cultivated throughout the history of humanity: the earth is therefore virgin, clean, free of any pollutants that, by the hand of man, could have spoiled it.
In this land in 1975 the lawyer Gabriele Mastrojanni bought the San Pio and Loreto farms and decided to plant the first vineyards that still partially produce our wines today.
Others, before him, starting with that pioneer who was Biondi-Santi, had had the same experience and the territory had clearly answered that the best grape variety for these lands is Sangiovese Grosso.
Mastrojanni, wanting to make a great Brunello, planted almost exclusively Sangiovese.
In those same years Maurizio Castelli, still our winemaker today, became the company's reference consultant.
The Mastrojanni family, who lived in Rome and came to Montalcino from time to time, decided to trust Andrea Machetti who offered to follow the evolution of the company full time.
Andrea started in 1992 and his passionate work allowed Mastrojanni to grow abroad and in production, perhaps in addition to the lawyer's initial dream. Today a point of reference for the company and the Illy group.
