About Brunello Di Montalcino 2013 Conti Costanti

The Costanti family dates back to the 1500's in Siena. This family owned estate is run now by Andrea Costanti. The modest estate has less than 30 acres of grape vines, but they lie on hillsides 1000 to 1200 feet above sea level at optimal exposure. The Brunello vines range in age from 6 to 25 years old very densely planted to limit yields. Fermentation is in temperature controlled stainless steel and lasts from 14-21 days. The wine from mature and older vines is aged in large Slavonian oak cask and the young vine wine is aged in three year old French barriques made from Allier oak, medium toast.

The 2012 vintage was the #1 Wine Enthusiast Magazine Cellar Selection of 2017. This 2013 is phenomenal follow-up. Once again designated a "Cellar Selection" Wine Enthusiast scored it 97 points saying "Delicately scented, this offers underbrush, pressed violet and wild berry aromas. It's medium-bodied and loaded with elegance, delivering crushed raspberry, Morello cherry, licorice and a hint of pipe tobacco set against taut, refined tannins. Bright acidity provides balance. It's a bit austere at this stage but will develop beautifully. Drink 2023–2043."
