Brunello di Montalcino, Mastrojanni - 2017

Item # 12111 750mL

The Mastrojanni estate is located in Castelnuovo dell'Abate in Montalcino. They are surrounded by woods and the vineyards are planted on a combination of clay, sandstone and lime-based pebbles. The scarceness of the soils is a boon for the 40 year old vines as they dive deep into the earth resulting in finer fruit character. Thsi Brunello was aged for 3 years in large oak barrels of varying sizes. Mastrojanni stands for elegance as this is a delightful characteristic in all their wines.
