Conti Costanti Rosso di Montalcino 2005 750ml

Conti Costanti Rosso di Montalcino

"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."

100% Sangiovese grapes, 10-12 months in 225-liter and 350-liter French barriques, 6 months’ bottle age. Rich, round, full-bodied, with gobs of red berry fruit, well integrated oak and firm tannins.

Rosso di Montalcino is found in the same defined area as its bigger brother, the Brunello di Montalcino DOCG. Both are situated in the heart of Tuscany, in central Italy. This DOC was created in 1984 in order to make the most of the fruit from younger vines of new plantings. The idea was to create a fresher style of wine that needed considerably less ageing time (one year with only six months in oak) than its sibling.
