One of the most respected and sought after producers in Montalcino, Mastrojanni has been writing history with its wines from the very start. Strategically located in the rolling hills of the Val d’Orca, many of the winery buildings were constructed in the 1380s by the Papacy as part of a fortress network to protect the surrounding lands. Vineyard cultivation is much more modern, and it wasn’t until 1975 that Gabriele Mastrojanni cleared and unified the San Pio and Loreto estates into one cohesive property.
Planted exclusively to Sangiovese Grosso, Mastrojanni utilizes its exceptional terroir toward a singular goal—the production of Montalcino’s finest Brunello. The winery’s detailed focus and unique approach differs from neighboring estates, focusing upon the quality of each individual grape rather than the vineyard as a whole. Excess and under-performing fruit is culled from the vineyard in August, and a further strict hand selection is conducted at the time of harvest to ensure only the best grapes are employed in the company’s bottling. The ensuing results are wines that exude elegance, finesse, and an intriguing silky character largely unknown to Brunello di Montalcino.
