Wow. What a gorgeous Brunello with complex and beautiful aromas and flavors of cherries, flowers, walnuts and berries. It’s full-bodied, yet so polished and refined with soft, creamy tannins that are long and linear at the end. It goes on for minutes. Drinkable now, but better in 2022.
The Mastrojanni 2015 Brunello di Montalcino has a succulent or meaty quality that adds to the overall intensity of the wine. You get rich fruit, baking spice and even a touch of rum cake. The wine is dark and velvety in appearance, and the mouthfeel is robust and concentrated. I love the full-bodied appeal and power of this wine. It has seamlessly captured the spirit of the vintage. Its approach is immediate, and you can enjoy this wine without waiting too much longer. The mouthfeel is lean, snappy and smooth. Fruit comes from a 14.4-hectare vineyard with south-facing exposures and clay soils with lots of broken rock shards. Some 58,000 bottles were released in January 2020.
Reaching over 400 metres, Mastrojanni's vineyards gaze southeast to southwest towards the Monte Amiata. While summer days are particularly warm, nighttime temperatures typically drop by 15°C. Harnessing all the heat of the vintage, this is loaded with rich, sumptuous fruit but retains relative freshness despite intense ripeness. Plum and black cherry are nuanced by smoky mint and cardamom. It's equally charged with assertive tannins which are caressing rather than drying.
