    This is a spectacular effort. The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva shows deep, inner intensity and lovely aromatic characteristics that are very true to the mighty Sangiovese grape. You can't go wrong with a wine like this, especially if you are seeking the true flavors of Montalcino. The aromas are presented in neat and tidy fashion with wild berry, blue flower, spice and herb that converge to create a united front. In the mouth, the wine delivers ample power and momentum with dark flavors and firm structure. The wine need another few years of bottle aging to flesh out further.

    Andrea Costanti’s 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is fabulous. The purity and translucence of Sangiovese comes through beautifully as the wine opens up. Refined, pedigreed and exceptionally beautiful, the Costanti pretty much embodies what 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is all about. Reference-point Brunello. It’s as simple as that.

    Rich, with a smooth texture and lively structure supporting the mulled cherry, licorice, leather and tobacco flavors. This firms up — a good sign in a young red, with a lingering finish of tobacco and spice. Best from 2018 through 2029. 2,500 cases made. — BS

  • 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.
