Vigna Schiena d’Asino by Mastrojanni is one of the Brunellis that is at the top of its denomination, for immense complexity and qualitative consistency. The result of a particularly suitable vineyard, which extends for about one hectare, Brunello Vigna Schiena d’Asino is the flagship wine of the Mastrojanni winery, founded in 1975 and today owned by the Illy group, which has kept its prestige intact by turning a eye towards the best quality instruments and implementations. From the intuition of Gabriele Mastrojanni, who understood in advance the immense potential of this area close to the Val d’Orcia, about 40 years have passed today but the intent to make wines that identify and best restore the territory has remained unchanged. Today there are about 24 hectares of vineyards, cultivated with care and obsessive attention and the results can be seen and above all you can feel: a wine for enthusiasts, or the right one to become one! Brunello Vigna Schiena d’Asino is produced as required by the disciplinary with 100% Sangiovese Grosso grapes. The extremely limited production of 3500 bottles per year, in addition to making it a wine to be taken over without delay, is due to an extremely careful selection of the best grapes from a single vineyard called Schiena d’Asino which extends for about one hectare. In the vineyard we work using only copper and sulfur, while in the cellar the fermentation takes place by indigenous yeasts. Aging takes place for 36 months in 16-25 hl Allier oak barrels and for another year in bottle before being put on the market. Vigna Schiena d’Asino wine reveals itself in the glass with its intense garnet color. Very rich, greedy and at the same time elegant nose where notes of cherry jam, wild berries, tobacco, chocolate and cinnamon stand out. Then again the dark spices, integrated. The sip is a true masterpiece, where all the components seem to be millimetrically fused. Robust and deep matter, sculpted tannin, revitalizing freshness and flavor: total cohesion! Long persistence that leaves as a dowry, it is a bottle for special occasions, or that can make any evening such a thing. Unmissable!
