    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep ruby red with reflections from crimson to garnet. Light vanilla aromas are accompanied by spices and tobacco leaf flavors. The palate is pervasive and leisurely with good length. Intriguing richness of flavor.

    Pair with game, grilled red meats and mature cheeses. Also, pair with dark chocolate when more mature.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Love the aromas of cedar, light vanilla, dark berry and plums. Full body, with layered tannins and and a beautiful mouth-feel. Lingers for minutes. The is a subtle and complex. Mastrojanni is getting better and better. Better than 2006.

    The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino is a big wine loaded with personality. Sweet dark cherries, licorice, smoke and leather burst from the glass in this explosive, rich Brunello. Layers of flavor develop with air, filling out the wine’s broad-shouldered frame very nicely. Firm tannins support the generous finish. This is a fabulous showing from Mastrojanni. The Brunello was fermented in cement and aged cask for 36 months. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027.

    Here's a dark, austere expression of Brunello, with layers of exotic spice, toasted nut, cardamom and forest underbrush. Small berry fruit comes through as raspberry and black currant. In the mouth, the wine is bright, defined and firm, showing solid tannic structure.

    Bright medium red. Aromas of redcurrant, spices and dried flowers complicated by licorice and menthol. Smooth and plush in the middle, but with very good verve and definition to the intense red berry and licorice flavors. Concentrated, nicely balanced Brunello with smooth tannins, classic dryness and very good finishing lift and length.

    Cherry and plum fruit is locked up within the firm, slightly hard-edged structure in this red, causing the wine to come off as angular and austere. But there's a core of sweet fruit and a long finish.
