Costanti is one of the few classic producers left in Tuscany; sticking to their traditional guns, their wines have seen very little change over the years. The Costanti family has a lineage dating back to the 1500s and being one of the first to start calling the grapes from the region Brunello. They are responsible for bringing the wine of this region to the modern world. Costanti has 12 hectares of vineyards grown at a high elevation of 400 meters, all farmed organically. The current winemaker Andrea says there is a great impact on the complexity of the bouquet from their farming techniques, coupled with their vineyard elevation and composition. After recently tasting their 2006 Brunello di Montalcino we agree wholeheartedly. The 2015 vintage for Brunello is a dream vintage and should be one of Costanti's most significant efforts to date. This is, in our opinion, one of the top stops for classic Brunello, masterfully balanced wines that reflect the tradition and history of one of the world's most significant wine-growing regions.
