Conti Costanti Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2010
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
Cellar Selection. Aromas of ripe black-skinned fruit, new leather, menthol and a whisper of blue flower unfold on this stunning, elegantly structured wine. The vibrant palate doles out ripe black cherry, cinnamon and star anise framed in firm, fine-grained tannins. Hold for even more complexity. Absolutely superb. Drink 2022-2035.
This is a spectacular effort. The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva shows deep, inner intensity and lovely aromatic characteristics that are very true to the mighty Sangiovese grape. You can't go wrong with a wine like this, especially if you are seeking the true flavors of Montalcino. The aromas are presented in neat and tidy fashion with wild berry, blue flower, spice and herb that converge to create a united front. In the mouth, the wine delivers ample power and momentum with dark flavors and firm structure. The wine need another few years of bottle aging to flesh out further.
This is tightly wound and powerful, featuring strawberry, cherry, hibiscus tea, earth and tobacco flavors. Racy and firm, this finishes with freshness and excellent length. Best from 2019 through 2034. 1,000 cases made.
