Mastrojanni has become one of the most respected producers in Montalcino.  In 1975 Gabriele Mastrojanni purchased the San Pio and Loreto estates and planted his first vines of Sangiovese.  In 1992 Andrea Macchetti, a brialliant enologist who worked in the cellars of Villa Banfi, came on board and with the world famous winemaker Maurizio Castelli they catapulted Mastrojanni to the top producers of the region.

Critical Acclaim

Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
Mastrojanni’s 2013 Brunello di Montalcino reveals a very precise and focused aromatic profile. This is a signature touch from this outstanding estate that, year in and year out, produces some of the best Brunello you can buy. Wild berries and cherries rise from the bouquet in an elegant flutter. Those tones are followed by spice, leather, rosemary and medicinal herb. The wine is streamlined, polished and smooth in terms of mouthfeel.
