Heiner Lobenberg über:
Brunello di Montalcino 2016


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. 98/100


Decanter über: Brunello di Montalcino

-- Decanter: With a history stretching back to the mid-16th century, Conti Costanti is one of the founding estates of the Brunello di Montalcino denomination, run by Andrea Costanti since 1983. He follows up his gorgeously seductive 2015 with a stunningly refined and gracious 2016. Savoury earthy notes are accompanied by nuanced dried florals, citrus peel and pure red berries. It reaches profound depths on the palate where compact, ripe and dusty tannins promise a long cellaring life. It's so seamlessly put together that it's almost a shame to try teasing it apart. 98/100


Winespectator über: Brunello di Montalcino

-- Winespectator: This red features a superb balance between ripe cherry, raspberry and currant fruit and savory elements of juniper and thyme. Earth and mineral accents add detail, and this has everything in the right proportions for a long life ahead. Best from 2024 through 2045. 6,000 cases made, 1,265 cases imported. 97/100


Galloni über: Brunello di Montalcino

-- Galloni: There’s a sensuality to Costanti's 2016 Brunello di Montalcino. It’s something about the way it draws you in and warms the soul. Its bouquet straddles both the light and dark sides of Sangiovese, rising up with alluring flowery perfumes, cedar dust and crushed cherry, yet then swaying toward rich brown spices and clove. The textures are velvety-smooth and elegant, ushering in a dense core of fleshy red berry fruits, which leave a coating of crystalline minerals and fine tannins in their wake. Though structured and aching for a stay in the cellar, you can’t help but pour another glass of this simply spellbinding Brunello. While in need of three to five years in the cellar for optimal enjoyment, the 2016 is absolutely worth checking in on today. 96/100
