Heiner Lobenberg über:
Brunello di Montalcino 2015


Lobenberg: Andrea Costanti ist eine Art 'living legend' und ein Winzer historischer Schule, eine Art bezahlbarer Biondui Santi. Enorme Frische und rasiermesserscharfe Mineralität, bewusst kein everybodys darling sondern ein Brunello für Genießer mit klassischem Anspruch. 97-98/100


Decanter über: Brunello di Montalcino

-- Decanter: After sitting out the 2014 vintage, Andrea Costanti calls 2015 a beautiful year and one of the best in the history of Brunello. He deemed it exceptional enough to craft a Riserva (to be released in 2021) yet his classic Brunello hasn't suffered for it. In fact, it's one of the greatest successes of the vintage. Gorgeous, seductive aromas are already expressive but still youthful. Cherry and plum are enveloped by exotic spice and a faint smokiness. The palate is plush and velvety with layers of powdery tannins that build, and tangy acid that cleanses the palate. Hedonistic but brilliantly balanced, it is hard to resist now but the best is definitely yet to come. 98/100


Parker über: Brunello di Montalcino

-- Parker: The Conti Costanti 2015 Brunello di Montalcino is vinous and ripe with lots of energy that comes from plummy black fruit and dried blackberry. The wine is front-loaded with those varietal tones, but the mouthfeel reveals a more delicate and softer approach than you might expect given the potency of that first nose. The wine achieves harmony, and offers a nice, long finish. The label states that fruit comes from the Colle al Matrichese, but I am not sure if that is an official estate vineyard designation. Either way, this is a serious cellar-worthy Brunello to sip and consider with a platter of fine cheeses. 95/100
