Brilliant ruby in color, the intense, ripe aromas of berry fruit prelude a lush and full-bodied palate, gorgeous tannis and nice structure, good longevity.

Vinification:
Fermentation takes place on the skins in temperature-controlled, stainless steel tanks, lasting approximately two weeks.

Aging:

Ratings & Reviews

97 Points & Cellar Selection - Wine Enthusiast Magazine (2013 Vintage):
"Delicately scented, this offers underbrush, pressed violet and wild berry aromas. It's medium-bodied and loaded with elegance, delivering crushed raspberry, Morello cherry, licorice and a hint of pipe tobacco set against taut, refined tannins. Bright acidity provides balance. It's a bit austere at this stage but will develop beautifully. Drink 2023–2043." - Kerin O’Keefe (May 2018)

94 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine (2013 Vintage):
"Macerated cherry fruit holds the center of this elegant red, accented by grass, tobacco and earth flavors. Firm yet supple and elegant, this lingers with a touch of thyme. Best from 2021 through 2035. 1,450 cases made." - BS (Jun 2018)

96 Points - Vinous (2013 Vintage):
"Very deep red. Flinty, floral red cherry and underbrush on the enticing, very pure, precise nose. Then silky and suave, with ripe red cherry, underbrush and savory spices lingering nicely on the long creamy finish. Another classic, outstanding Brunello from Costanti, who has made a few in his time. " Ian D'Agata - (Apr 2018)
