Could you please tell us the story of your winery, when it was created and how it developed decades after decades ?

Mastrojanni has been writing history with its wines since 1975, when lawyer Mastrojanni owned the property of 90 Ha in Castelnuovo dell’Abate, the south easternmost corner of Montalcino, an area with a strong winemaking tradition and the homeland of Brunello. In 1992, Andrea Machetti, started managing the cellars and in September 2008 the farm was owned by the Illy Group, naming Andrea Machetti as CEO. Today Mastrojanni stretches over 90 hectares, 35 of which for vines, with vineyards over 35 years old. The height varies from 190 meters to 420 meters above sea level. The area enjoys exposure to all cardinal points, with more or less steep slopes.

How important are your export distribution compared to national distribution ?

1/3 Italy, 2/3 export


What sort of distributors are your customers ?



Why your wines are different from other wineries in your area ? 

Kind of soil in Vigna Loreto : tufa and river stones with an implantation of 6 old clones of Sangiovese

We take care after the vineyards until we scrupulously pick up the grape by hand.
