2018 Mastrojanni Brunello di Montalcino DOCG Tuscany, Italy 1.5L/MAGNUM)
The intense and warm ruby red color anticipates a wide- ranging aroma accompanied by notes of pulpy and ripe fruit enriched by spicy nuances, notes of undergrowth and pleasant balsamic hints. In the mouth a dense and silky tannic texture admirably supported by a fragrant acidity guides with great elegance to a long and persistent finish.
"This rich, round red is marked by plum and cherry fruit, with grace notes of wild rosemary, juniper and stony mineral. Tightly wound, with an angular, steely finish that lingers nicely, despite the assertive tannins. Shows good energy. Best from 2026 through 2047. 5,200 cases made, 1,700 cases imported.

With a red wax seal affixed to the front of the bottle, the Mastrojanni 2018 Brunello di Montalcino shows dark fruit, dried cherry, iris roots, savory spice and crushed stone. The wine presents a classic aromatic profile for Sangiovese from Montalcino. The only distraction is the wine's high 15% alcohol content. Otherwise, the wine is silky and smooth with integrated tannins. This 70,000-bottle production is set up for near and medium-term drinking.
