Conti Costanti Rosso di Montalcino 2019


In Stock

“The 2019 Rosso di Montalcino is deep, primary and full of character. Here I’m finding a seductive bouquet of black raspberry preserves complemented by nuances of clove, allspice and candied ginger. Its textures are silky and pliant, displaying much more weight than you’d expect from a Rosso, which is balanced by a core of bright acidity. Rich red and hints of blue fruit prevail, lasting throughout the incredibly long and floral tinged finale, where a coating of sweet tannin lingers. As good as this is today, it will be even better in another year and easily excel over short-term cellaring. There were only 10,000 bottles produced of the 2019, which is about half of what was bottled in 2018. Don’t miss it! Drinking window: 2022-2029. 93 points

The Costanti Rosso is sourced from fruit in the lower and sandier soils at the base of the Montosoli hill, and it’s refined for one year in tonneaux. This is a Rosso that can easily be enjoyed in its youth or cellared over the medium term.”
