More About This Wine
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.

($87) Good bright, medium red. Complex nose offers redcurrant, dried flowers, leather and minerals. Velvety and pliant in texture, with a lovely restrained sweetness to the berry, spice and floral flavors. Wonderfully spherical, balanced wine with no hard edges. Offers an impression of volume without weight and spreads out subtly to saturate the palate. The tannins are sweet and fine. (Empson U.S.A., Alexandria, VA)
