The Azienda Agricola Mastrojanni is a family business founded in 1975. The family holds just over 90 hectares of rolling and gentle Tuscan hills, of which 24 hectares are devoted to vineyards. The land is located in the southeast corner of the famous DOCG Montalcino zone of Tuscany, where the Asso flows into the Orcia River. The soil and climate is influenced by an extinct volcano, the nearby Mount Amiata. The stony soil is rich in gravel, clay and limestone, which is complemented by the plentiful sunshine guaranteed by the south-eastern exposure. In 2008, a number of years after founding Mastrojanni had passed away, his children decided to sell the estate to the Illy family (Famous for their global brand of coffee). Today they continue the tradition started by the venerable Mastrojanni family.

About the wine

Tasting notes

Dark and luminous with aromas of dried cherry, tomato, blackberry, fig, balsamic, coffee, spice, leather and tar. In the mouth it's rich and intense and drives with a deepness of fruit, captivating minerality, bright acidity and earthy spice. It's tight and structured, but elegantly so. One for the cellar!

The Grape

Sangiovese

Sangiovese is a Tuscan red grape variety that has become the most planted and famous variety in Italy. You may know this variety by a few other names like Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino, Montefalco Rosso or Carmignano, but rest assured it's all the same grape, but it may grow in different regions. Sangiovese is made for food and shows with aromas and flavours of cherry, red berries, roasted tomato, balsamic, Italian herbs, coffee and cured meats, backed by cutting acidity and a good grip of tannins. The best examples come from Montalcino (Brunello di Montalcino) and can age decades!
