Winemaker's Notes

Deep ruby red with reflections from crimson to garnet. The bouquet of light vanilla is accompanied by spices and tobacco leaf flavors. The taste is initially pleasantly sour, then wide and palatable. It has an amazing sapidity. Game, grilled red meat and mature cheeses will pair nicely.

Critical Acclaim

"Raspberry and flowers follow through to a full body, with soft tannins and a round, pretty aftertaste. Best after 2008. 2,900 cases made."
89 Points

"Mastrojanni’s 2003 Brunello di Montalcino reveals high-toned aromatics that lead to very ripe, almost candied red cherries. Notes of tar, smoke, menthol and spices emerge with air as this wine puts on considerable weight in the glass. The heat of the vintage appears to have given this wine an extra degree of plumpness, but it is also one of the few wines in which the alcohol is clearly felt. Although the wine offers excellent length, the elegance of the finish is compromised by bitter, astringent tannins. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2018."
89 Points

"Medium red with an amber edge. Aromas of bitter cherry, brambly berries, dried flowers, cedar and licorice. Silky and pliant in the mouth, but with good energy to the juicy, sweet red fruit and leather flavors. Finishes with smooth tannins and good length."

For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...
