If you travel back in time you would be surprised by counting the few companies that were operating in Montalcino in the seventies. Mastrojanni was born in that period and immediately set itself the goal of sought-after quality at all costs, and it is among those that, thanks to its commitment, have most fueled the virtuosity of the “Brunello System”. In 2008 the company was purchased by the Illy Group, which brought new essential energy to invest in the construction of further plants, acquire vineyards, modernize the cellar - a rare example of the combination of bio-architecture and recovery of construction techniques - planning the renovation of the ancient Village in which it is hosted. The wines tasted are as usual ambassadors of an exclusive terroir and when the vintage allows it, as in the case of 2013, one is entranced by the sumptuous classicism of Vigna Schiena d'Asino: an unforgettable red. The presentation of the Brunello Vigna Loreto not produced in the 2014 vintage has been postponed by one year, the grapes of which have merged together with those from the Vigna Schiena d'Asino in the prized “vintage” Brunello.
