The Vigna Loreto, located on the slope in front of the Mastrojanni winery, is the estate's showpiece vineyard, not only because it is positioned in full view of incoming visitors but also because of its ideal southeast-facing exposures. It is 1.58 hectares in size and has pebbles and tufo. The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna Loreto (with 8,000 bottles produced) is awash in sunlight and Tuscan luminosity, resulting in a ripe and fruit-forward Brunello that never shies away in terms of richness or intensity. Indeed, the wine delivers a special level of power that transcends the bouquet and the palate, resulting in dark fruit, spice, leather, cured tobacco and rosemary essence. The tannins are firm but integrated and otherwise tucked into the ample flesh of the wine. Drink 2023-2045.
Wine Tasting Notes
In the wine, the strength and the vigor of the grape variety, the pulpiness and sweetness of the fruit and the energy of the dense and ripe tannin are admirably combined and blended. The tannins, together with a crunchy and juicy acidity, give a long persistence and considerable potential of aging. Mastrojanni Brunello di Montalcino Vigna Loreto DOCG shows bright and deep ruby red. The oriental spices and the fresh tobacco leave enhance its ripe red fruit notes. Broad and enveloping entry, supported by a potent and ripe tannin, to conclude with a silky and elegant ending.
