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.

Good bright, deep red. Deep, pure, brooding nose hints at licorice and minerals. Powerful and penetrating but extremely backward, with strong acidity framing and intensifying the flavors of dark fruits and licorice. Finishes very long and vibrant, with a medicinal note of menthol. This compellingly deep but extremely backward wine is built for a long life in bottle but is not fun to drink today. Shows the acidity and grip of 2006.
