Mastrojanni's 2015 Brunello di Montalcino presents a complex, dark, and earthy display of ripe black cherries that gives way to dusty, dried florals, spice box, crushed stone and hints of animal musk. On the palate, silky textures and pure Sangiovese fruit collect beneath resonating earth tones, all supported by a web of minerals and tannin. The finish is long and youthfully structured, yet the wine maintains terrific freshness. (Eric Guido, Vinous, April 2020)

Vibrant red. Aromas of violet, red cherry and licorice on the nose. Trim and modestly built, but with very good acid-fruit-tannin balance and clean flavors of red cherry and herbs on the medium-long finish. I expect this to improve with a little bottle age. (Ian D'Agata, Vinous, April 2020)

Primary fruit, pretty nose of baking spice. Balanced but restrained.

Past its peak but still interesting. Tannins are soft, balsamic, dried herbs, plum, earth

Very fruity, jammy almost and higher alcohol. Missed the earth.

Big, fruit-forward and powerful. A bold wine with excellent tannins and nice acidity...it’s drinking well now but definitely had many, many years ahead of it.

Surprising elegance on the palate for being as saturated and alcoholic as it is. Classic dark cherry, leather, cigar box, licorice, balsamic herb notes, dry and dusty tannin. Great fruit purity and spice character. Big, powerful wine with a sensitive side.

A perfect reminder that the point of wine is to bring us together. Thank you to the ever gracious @Leslie Hartley-Sbrocco for hosting, and Riccardo Illy for providing the delicious reason to do so.

Elegant wine. Wild strawberry and dried dark cherry and cassis. Earthiness and tobacco give this wine the depth one would expect. Open 60-90 minutes before service.
