Mastrojanni's Brunello di Montalcino Vigna Schiena d'Asino is aged in cask although for 42 months. The color of this Brunello is brilliant ruby red with nuances of garnet red and a pretty low transparency.
The opening of this Brunello di Montalcino denotes intense and elegant aromas of black cherry, plum and blackberry, also in this case being very typical in Sangiovese Grosso, in particular black cherry and plum. After having swirled the glass, the second smell provides the aromas of violet, rose and blueberry, followed by spicy aromas of cinnamon, pink pepper and vanilla, as well as tobacco and pleasing balsamic hints of menthol.
The attack has a remarkable structure and astringency, also well balanced by alcohol, crispness and a pleasing roundness. The finish is very persistent, leaving in the mouth long flavors of black cherry, plum and blackberry, very elegant and clean.
