The Illy era.

In 2008, a number of years after Mastrojanni the lawyer passed away, his children decided to sell the estate to the Illy family who were lucky enough to be able to purchase it.   
From that day, my brother Riccardo and I have intensified these controls, which were already very meticulous, introducing a selection table and a few Vosges oak vinification tanks, from centuries-old plants, to flank the historic cement tanks.   
The result of this is as follows – even though slight – improvements, we will see them over the next few years: the original Mastrojanni character is guaranteed and perhaps the wine will become even better, but it is too early to know that yet.
