Wine Advocate

98 Points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Here's a wine that embodies the spirit of the vintage. It comes from a small one-hectare vineyard site located on the crest of a hill, or the so-called "donkey's spine" maybe because it looks like a schiena d'asino or maybe because the labor-intensive farming broke its proverbial back. The Mastrojanni 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna Schiena d'Asino shows a sweet spot with ripe red cherry and plump blackberry or plum. It segues slowly to spice, tar and licorice. This wine is a bit more streamlined and linear compared to the Vigna Loreto, and the Vigna Schiena d'Asino is also longer, deeper and more nuanced in comparison. It finishes with a beautiful blast of bight cherry. This wine is truly beautiful. Only 6,000 bottles were made, and we can look forward to this wine's release in September 2020."01/20

James Suckling

94 Points, James Suckling: "A juicy, tangy Brunello with lots of dried-cherry and walnut aromas and flavors. Orange and lemon-peel undertones, too. Energetic and lively at the end. Drink or hold." 05/20
