Product Details

Conti Costanti is one of the three “founding fathers” of Brunello di Montalcino and, with Barbi, the only one still owned by the same family. The barely 10ha vineyard, entirely biodynamic, is located just outside the town on the southern slope. Without much fuss, some of Montalcino’s finest wines are made here year after year. After manual harvest, the grapes are fully de-risked and fermented in steel cuves. The Brunello matures in large 30hl and 5hl barrels for 3 years and then bottle for a further 2 years before release. The results are particularly great Brunello’s in a complex, structured style , with a little more roundness that still makes them a little more accessible than those from Biondi-Santi.

The Rosso Vermiglio comes from the same vineyards, but receives a shorter ageing period and this too is a particularly fine, complex wine of a level that not so many Brunello’s reach….

Finally, the Rosso comes from slightly sandier terroir and is aged for a year in 3-year-old 225l and 335l Allier oak barrels. It is a truly blissful wine and certainly one of the very finest Rossos. Can be drunk after just a few years.
