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 full, bright red. Complex, soil-inflected aromas of red cherry, red berries, flowers, spices and minerals. Wonderfully plump, seamless and suave, with enticing sweetness to its red fruit and mineral flavors. A saline element, harmonious acidity and underlying minerality give sappiness and elegance to this very long, strong, sophisticated 2007. This wonderfully silky, sweet, expressive wine retained its energy well after 72 hours in the recorked bottle. A beauty.
