    Nestled in the picturesque hamlet of Castelnuovo dell'Abate, a small town within Montalcino, lies the Mastrojanni Relais. At a height of 400 metres, the vineyards stretch out below offering breathtaking views of the Orcia River mouth and its surrounding landscape. The soil of these vineyards is some of the sparsest in the region, with low yields and sparse nutrients. However, it is precisely these conditions that yield the famous Vigna Cru Schiena d'Asino wine, which is highly sought after by wine connoisseurs. The estate's proximity to Mount Amiata, a dormant volcano standing at 1,738 meters, provides it with a unique microclimate. The mountain acts as a protective barrier against hailstorms and its rising currents divert storms away from the vineyards. This, coupled with the strong winds that blow around the area at night, creates an environment that is ideal for grape growth. The Mastrojanni Relais is committed to tradition and incorporates bioarchitecture in its approach to building the wine aging cellar. The use of wooden beams, chestnut flanges, terracotta bricks and stone gabions to hold back the thrust of the hillside in which the cellar is buried creates a harmonic environment that is conducive to longer periods of bottle-aging. In keeping with their commitment to tradition, Mastrojanni uses concrete tanks for the fermentation and storage of wine. The glazed concrete tanks are primarily used for grapes with advanced ripening stages, while the brushed tanks are used for micro-oxygenation purposes. With a focus on the hands-on approach, the Mastrojanni Relais selects only the best grapes and ensures that all clusters undergo selection before the wine-making process begins. The resulting wine is free from any negative organoleptic overtones, thereby guaranteeing the highest quality product. Mastrojanni Relais is a testament to how tradition and innovation can be married to produce a product that is both unique and of the highest quality.

    Brunello di Montalcino is a wine that embodies the essence of Italy's highest DOCG classification (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita). Made with 100% Sangiovese, this red wine is produced in the vineyards surrounding the beautiful town of Montalcino, located in the province of Siena in the Tuscany wine region. The name "Brunello," which means "brown," was given to this wine because of the color of the grapes that were believed to be a unique variety grown in Montalcino. The Sangiovese used to make Brunello di Montalcino is a local Tuscan type known as Brunello or Sangiovese Grosso. This variety has thicker-skinned berries, which contribute to the wine's exceptionally bold fruit flavors, high tannin and high acidity. The enduring popularity of Brunello di Montalcino is due to the quality of the fruit, which is carefully selected and handpicked to ensure only the best grapes make it into the wine. However, it's the tannins and acidity that give this wine its longevity, allowing it to age gracefully for a decade or more before reaching its full potential.

    The Mastrojanni Rosso Di Montalcino 2020 is a wine that truly captures the essence of the Sangiovese grape. This wine has an intense and brilliant ruby red color that immediately catches the eye. On the nose, it offers a rich and wide aroma, where fruity notes of plum and blackberry are linked to a sweet spiciness, softened by elegant balsamic nuances. In the mouth, the wine has a compact and ripe tannic texture that is stimulated by a fragrant acidity, which provides a perfect balance. This leads to a savory, long and mineral finish that lingers on the palate. Aged for 6-7 months in 54 hl barrels made of Allier oak and then for 3 months in the bottle, the Mastrojanni Rosso Di Montalcino 2020 has an intense ruby red color. With a production of 50,000 bottles, this wine is a true expression of the Sangiovese grape. This wine pairs perfectly with all courses of a meal, but it's particularly well-suited for grilled red meats.

    "Absolutely delicious, this smooth, full-bodied red delivers juicy blackberry, baked plum and ripe Marasca cherry interwoven with tobacco and licorice. Balsamic notes of cedar and camphor add depth while firm but polished tannins lend structure and seamless support. It's already enjoyable but will also offer years of pleasure. Drink through 2029." Kerin O’Keefe - 95/100Wine Enthusiast
