“($75) 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. Drink: 2021-2035. 94+ points.” –Monica Larner, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, Jan. 31, 2020.
“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. 97 points.” –James Suckling, jamessuckling.com, Dec. 21, 2020.
The wine with a deep and intense color, result of a generous summer, opens in a wide and visceral sip with overlapping of fragrance of plum and red fruits, notes of tobacco, shaded by a puff of leather and chocolate.
In an elegant and enveloping mouth, the dense and compact tannin gives the impulse for an inviting, long and savory finish.
