The Conti Costanti 2012 Brunello di Montalcino is a sure bet even if you are a Sangiovese novice. This is a richly extracted and beautifully layered red wine that imparts generous fruit tones supported by ample spice and tobacco. The effect is supple and round, especially with regards to the bouquet. -WA
Sweet cherry, licorice, leather and wild herb aromas and flavors converge on the dense structure of this red, which takes on a tannic edge as it plays out. There's plenty of fruit, and all the components seem to be in the right proportions. -WS
Conti Costanti is an Italian wine producer located in the Montalcino DOCG appellation of Tuscany. It is well known for its Brunello di Montalcino and Rosso di Montalcino wines, although its portfolio also includes two Grappa Di Brunellos.
The Costanti family was involved in the formation of the Republic of Siena in 1555, and became a key presence in the area. They rose to winemaking prominence in the 19th Century when Tito Costanti was one of the first to make wines using the name "Brunello". Today, the winery is presided over by Andrea Costanti, who took over the family-owned business in 1983.
