Wine Shop - Vegan wines - Brunello 2016 New Release - Mastrojanni
Brunello 2016 is a staggering vintage, with all peaks of the 2015s yet greater consistency. The wines marry elegance and refinement with intensity, grip and power, revealing hauntingly persistent tannins and the promise of incredible complexity in the future. These wines are undoubtedly destined for greatness, with many pundits talking up 2016 as potentially the best-ever vintage for Brunello. Perhaps this is why merchants have been eager to release the wines so early! As always we have been narrow in our selection, although these superstar growers really capture the generous soul of the vintage. From Castello di Romitorio to Argiano, all our producers have received dizzyingly high scores from critics and their Brunelli will provide unrivalled drinking pleasure for a very long time indeed.
The Mastrojanni Estate is situated in the south-east corner of the Montalcino region, set apart up a dirt road from the village of Castelnuovo dell'Abate. The wines are traditional and terroir-driven and the winery eschews the use of barriques as one might expect from such traditionalists. Having been purchased by coffee giants Illy, the estate has enjoyed even greater success in recent years and is now rated in the top 10 in the region.

There is plenty of ripe fruit in the bottle but the wines also have a savoury sophistication and retain a freshness and vivacity in later years after their more initially-exuberant peers have faded. Indeed, Nicolas Belfrage states that the single vineyard Riserva, Schiena d'Asino is 'at its peak, to die for...the 1990 was one of the finest Brunellos I have ever tasted'.
