Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 94

($60) Very dark garnet. Ethereal nose of wildflowers, especially lavender. Vibrant, sharply focused flavors of anise, chocolate, coffee and white pepper. Superbly concentrated, with a velvety mouth feel and firm, ripe tannins. A long, mineral-laden finish brings this poised and multidimensional wine to a deeply satisfying close. (Empson USA, Alexandria, VA)

About This Producer


The varied and colorful history of the Costanti family is interesting on its own, but the wines are sufficiently compelling to rival it. In the early 1970s, Conte Emilio, with the partnership of his brother, Elvio, began the commercial Costanti Brunello production. In 1982, the grandson, Andrea, was lured away from his studies in geology and became completely dedicated to the production of stellar, traditional Brunelli. The wines are the epitome of powerful elegance and express a textured and layered complexity. The ripe fruit is balanced by a surreptitious dried fruit and satiny tannin/acidity combination.
