  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

    ($73) Deep red. Blackberry, minerals and dried flowers on the vibrant nose. Then dense and sweet but lively, with compelling intensity and purity of flavor and terrific penetration. The red and darker berry flavors are perfectly framed by ripe acids that give the wine exceptional vinosity and energy. This outstanding and very young Brunello offers an exhilarating combination of fruit of steel, seductive sweetness and a terrific spine-not to mention palate-staining persistence. Relies as much on its acidity as on its ripe tannins for structure. (Empson U.S.A., Alexandria, VA)

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 93

    Aromas of berry and lightly toasted oak follow through to a full-bodied palate, with big juicy tannins and a long finish. Big wine. Needs time to mellow. 2,750 cases made.

    Costanti's 2001 Brunello di Montalcino, with its pure, cleanly articulated notes of cherries, tobacco and underbrush, is a textbook example of Sangiovese from Montalcino. It shows excellent concentration, great length and nuanced transparency with fine, elegant tannins and a note of warmth from the alcohol on the finish. This outstanding Brunello will benefit from a few years in the cellar, after which it will drink well to at least age twenty.

  • 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.
