Costanti Brunello di Montalcino DOCG
100% Sangiovese. Costanti Brunello di Montalcino is ruby red, with good intensity and garnet reflections. Ample and enveloping, with notes of ripe red fruit and hints of underbrush. Mild yet noble spice. Excellent structure with soft tannins and long aromatic persistence. In spite of the hot vintage, the acidity profile is exceptional.
“For Costanti Winery, the authenticity of these wines rises above the fleeting trends.“
