September 201396+ Costanti’s 2006 Brunello di Montalcino was simply fabulous. One of the more refined Brunellos in this tasting, the 2006 was gracious, silky and polished from the very first taste.
International Wine Cellar
July 201196 Good deep, full red. Knockout nose offers black fruits, licorice, curry powder and rose oil, plus a hint of leather; Musigny meets Barbaresco. Silky and sweet, but with terrific grip and class. Conveys an impression of density and thickness without weight. Wonderfully tactile wine with a savory, mineral-driven finish and outstanding saline persistence. Built to age, and yet this wine is impeccably balanced from day one.
May 201195+ The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is a dazzling wine. The aromatics alone are haunting. Sweet red cherries, rosemary, sage, tobacco and cedar are woven into a fabric of nearly indescribable elegance. Costanti’s straight Brunello can sometimes lack a little depth in its fruit, but not in 2006. This totally complete, harmonious Brunello is shaping up to be one of the wines of the vintage. It is a stunner. As delicious as the wine is now, it really needs at least a handful of years for the firm tannins to start melting away. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2031.
July 31, 201193 Offers a mix of cedar, cherry, licorice and tobacco aromas and flavors, all married to a medium-weight, compact frame. Tightens up on the finish, yet there's fine intensity and grip. This should develop well. Best from 2013 through 2025. 2,500 cases made.
