    Medium-deep red. The beautiful, textbook Brunello aromas of violet, sour red cherry, licorice and tea leaf soar from the glass. Much more plush and silky in texture than usual from this producer (this is normally the archetypical old-school Brunello), with none of the rustic notes of other vintages, this shows ripe flavors of black cherry, porcini, tar and nutmeg with noteworthy energy and vibrancy and a surprisingly round texture. Firm tannins rear their head on the long, pure finish, providing needed clarity and backbone. Cellar this for five or six years, then enjoy it for another 20 after that.

    Spice, blackberry and cedar aromas follow through to a full-bodied palate, with a fruit and pepper aftertaste. Tough now. Needs a few years to soften.

    The 2001 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna Schiena d'Asino is a compelling effort that reveals different shades of nuance with each taste. Made in a deceptively medium-bodied style, it is loaded with varietal Sangiovese notes of red cherries, tobacco, earthiness and smoke. The wine possess outstanding length and lovely overall balance, only the slightly drying tannins on the finish keep the score from going higher. AG

  • Azienda Agricola Mastrojanni, originally part of the Fattoria dei Barbi estate in Castelnuovo dell'Abate, has been lovingly producing exquisite Brunellos in Southeasten Montalcino since 1975. Gravel, sand, and limestone-rich soils from the inactive Mount Amiata lend structure to the wines produced from the 44-hectare estate. The Mastrojanni family, along with the talented Maurizio Castelli and Andrea Marchetti, consistently create Brunello that expresses this prime terroir. Mastrojanni also produces a Rosso di Montalcino and an IGT blend called "San Pio."
