An amazing story, for true fine red wine lovers.
Mastrojanni: a historic estate and its Brunello di Montalcino, its special terroir, its very special men.
Mastrojanni has been writing history with its wines since 1975, collecting awards from all over the world.
And in those years, only a few entered the wine-making adventure in Montalcino.
Today, thanks to an exceptional terroir and men who have believed in it for decades, Mastrojanni has become one of the most respected Montalcino producers as far as wine buffs are concerned.
History and Tradition
1975, Roman lawyer, Gabriele Mastrojanni buys the San Pio and Loreto estates.
In the beginning poor land, sheep, woodland and untouched nature.
These lands have been poorly populated and poorly cultivated throughout the history of humanity: the land was therefore virgin, clean, without any form of pollution which man was then able to deface.
It was here in 1975 that lawyer, Gabriele Mastrojanni bought the San Pio and Loreto estates and decided to plant his first vineyards, of which part are still producing our wines today.
The origins of a work of art.
Gabriele Mastrojanni discovered this landscape, this territory.
Pioneered by Biondi-Santi, other producers before him had also experimented with Sangiovese Grosso and witnessed how the terroir responded clearly: Sangiovese Grosso is the best grape variety for the soil of Montalcino.
Wanting to make a great Brunello, Mastrojanni planted almost exclusively Sangiovese vines and, thanks to a unique terroir and passionate work, the winery grew in production and exports, perhaps even beyond the lawyer's initial dream.
