Costanti has ten hectares of vineyards just outside the town of
Montalcino. They are planted at 400-450m above sea level on galestro
soil. The vines range from 6-25 years old. The Riserva is made from a
selection of the best grapes from the estate`s oldest vineyards.
The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva reveals impressive richness in its wild cherries, sweet herbs, spices, minerals and tobacco that meld with a high-toned bouquet. This gorgeous, medium to full-bodied Brunello blossoms on the palate as intricate layers of fruit continue to emerge with a wonderful classiness. The long, harmonious finish leaves a lasting impression. This is a terrific effort from Costanti. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029.
