Bright ruby red in colour, this wine has typical perfumes of morello cherry, cinnamon and spice. On the palate it has wonderful elegance and balance with silky tannins softened by cask and bottle ageing. Spiced red berry fruit characters are supported by an attractive savoury character, with a hint of liquorice on the long finish.
The 2009 Brunello di Montalcino is one of the classiest wines of the vintage. Macerated cherry, cinnamon, orange peel and spice notes are all fused together in a succulent, impeccably balanced Brunello endowed with fabulous balance, knock-out aromatics and remarkable grace. Costanti’s 2011 is a rare Brunello from this vintage that has enough structure to age for a number of years. Its class and pedigree are evident, even at this early stage.
