Grape(s): 100% Sangiovese "Brunello"
Localization: Brunello di Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy
Tasting Notes: The Costanti Brunello di Montalcino is nicely layered and concentrated, with immediate delivery of black fruit, spice, and potting soil. This vintage shows a savory personality more than it shows a sweet one, and the tannins are quite soft and velvety.
97 points Wine Enthusiast: Extremely elegant and focused, this compelling wine defies the heat of the vintage, starting with a heady fragrance of ripe dark-skinned berries, violet, camphor, dark spice, and whiffs of crushed herbs. On the linear, elegantly structured palate, tightly woven but extremely polished tannins accompany juicy Marasca cherry, blood orange, licorice, and white pepper while fresh acidity keeps it balanced and fresh.
