Notes from the winemaker:
Conti Costanti was founded in 1555 in the province of Siena. The noble Costanti family goes back a long way – at least to Renaissance times. One of several famous counts,
Costanti – Tito – was both a lawyer and a winemaker, and anticipated the present DOCG and DOC denominations. Not only was he one of the very first to use the name Brunello for Montalcino red wines, but the methods he employed were strikingly similar to those used for Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino today. Today’s winemaker is Andrea Costanti, and the consultant winemaker is Vittorio Fiore. Costanti currently has 25 acres under vine with an average yearly production of about 60,000 bottles.

Ratings & Reviews
99 Points - Wine Enthusiast's Cellar Selection
(April 2021)


96 Points - Vinous Media:

"There’s a sensuality to Costanti's 2016 Brunello di Montalcino. It’s something about the way it draws you in and warms the soul. Its bouquet straddles both the light and dark sides of Sangiovese, rising up with alluring flowery perfumes, cedar dust and crushed cherry, yet then swaying toward rich brown spices and clove. The textures are velvety-smooth and elegant, ushering in a dense core of fleshy red berry fruits, which leave a coating of crystalline minerals and fine tannins in their wake. Though structured and aching for a stay in the cellar, you can’t help but pour another glass of this simply spellbinding Brunello. While in need of three to five years in the cellar for optimal enjoyment, the 2016 is absolutely worth checking in on today." - Eric Guido (November 2020)

94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The Conti Costanti 2016 Brunello di Montalcino shows warm fruit layering with cherry, wild raspberry and plum. You might also notice some touches of sweetness with candied orange skin and lavender honey. At the back of it all, you get tilled earth and a touch of black olive. This wine reveals good complexity to the bouquet and follows up with a streamlined, mid-weight mouthfeel. I found this vintage to be shorter compared to the 2015 edition tasted earlier in the year. Production is 35,000 bottles." - Monica Larner (November 2020)
