100% Sangiovese. Vinification includes: fermentation on the skins for two weeks. The wine sojourns 36 months in wood: 18 months in Slavonian oak barrels (from 30 hl) and 18 months in French tonneaux (3.5 to 6 hl). Once bottled, the wine rests at least 12 months before it is released. Brilliant ruby in color, the intense, ripe aromas of berry fruit prelude a lush and full-bodied palate.
"The 2005 Brunello di Montalcino is a gorgeous Brunello endowed with notable clarity and depth in its red fruit, licorice, tobacco and herbs. The wine possesses quite a bit of density in this vintage along with plenty of stuffing to match the tannins. High-toned flowers and subtle herbs linger on the delicate finish. This is one of only a handful of 2005 Brunellos that has the potential to develop positively over the coming years. I have tasted the 2005 on multiple occasions recently, and it continues to come together beautifully. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2025. This is a beautiful set of new releases from Costanti, a reference-point producer of traditionally made Brunello and Rosso.
