About Costanti

When Andrea Costanti took over the family business from his Uncle Emilio in 1983, he had big shoes to fill—the Costantis have been one of the premier wine families in Montalcino since the 1500s. Costanti proved more than up to the challenge, however, and today, produces complex, aromatic Brunellos, plus the Super Tuscan Vermiglio.

Expert Reviews

90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - October 2009

($44) Good full red. High-pitched aromas of redcurrant, red cherry, tar, minerals and tobacco, lifted by a spicy component. Very dry and classically structured, with a youthfully austere quality and no baby fat to the red cherry, dark plum and mineral flavors. Finishes long and clean, with a broad dusting of tannins and a distinctive stony element. This needs time to develop more flesh and volume: I'd give it a year in the cellar and enjoy for three to five years afterwards. In August Andrea Costanti told me that "Rosso di Montalcino is just as important for all of us in Montalcino as Brunello, and we shouldn't devalue it. In my view it's perfectly acceptable to have two different versions of Rosso as well, one bigger and more structured, the other simpler and more approachable." (Empson U.S.A., Alexandria, VA)

Sangiovese

The trademark of wines from Tuscany, and especially those from the region of Chianti, was once the fiasco. This straw-colored flask may carry associations of lengthy rustic meals out on the portico of a villa in the Tuscan countryside, but this romantic reverie must be interrupted with a burst of reality...
