The selection of the best grapes

Since 2008 all grape clusters undergo a further selection on a selection belt, where between six and eight people choose cluster by cluster eliminating those final defects which might have gone unnoticed during the harvest.

In this way the certainty of only making wine from healthy and perfectly ripe Sangiovese grapes is ensured and guaranteed: the absence of defects guarantees that the resulting wine is free from a whole series of negative organoleptic overtones which typically come from less than perfect grapes. 

It is enough to think of a few mouldy grapes, or grapes which are over or under ripe to imagine the unpleasant odours or aggressive tannins which they could bring to a wine: these are rigorously eliminated and this is something that Mastrojanni has done since the earliest times.
