Conti Costanti Rosso di Montalcino 2020


In Stock

“Wild strawberries, dusty rose, lavender and hints of clove create a pretty and wonderfully inviting bouquet as the 2020 Rosso di Montalcino opens in the glass. This elegant expression of the vintage flows across the palate with ease, leaving a staining of red- and blue-toned fruit and inner florals. It tapers off delicate yet long, impressing with its soft touch and the saline-tinged minerals that add a pleasant tension toward the close. The 2020 is one of the most balanced Rosso’s that I’ve tasted from the vintage, showing both opulence but also poise. Andrea Costanti adds that he’s never seen as much dry extract and polyphenols as he did in 2020. Drinking window: 2023-2026. 91 points

With the 2019 vintage, Andrea Costanti brings back the Rosso di Montalcino Vermiglio, a wine that hasn’t been produced since 2013. The Vermiglio is a barrel selection of Costanti’s Rosso that matures in cask for two years prior to bottling and is released a year later than the estate’s Rosso di Montalcino. The 2019 is a serious re-debut of this wine and one that should age beautifully through its 10th birthday.”
