We only have a handful of cases left of this delicious wine and can't think of a better pairing than your first homemade bolognese of the season!

That's right...you may have noticed that your farmer's market has already transitioned to root vegetables and a bounty of ripe tomatoes primed for sauce.  Instead of favoring crisp rosés, we are now craving the terroir of Tuscany. Ripe cherry, fig, tobacco leaf, dried spice - the 2012 Costanti Brunello has all this and more!  It is a “knockout classic Brunello.  In fact, one of the year’s best." Antonio Galloni

This is one of the most traditionally-made Brunellos on the market. We have raved about the beauty of the 2012’s in prior features, as have the critics:

"2012 is not a vintage to miss for fans of Brunello di Montalcino...these wines have [a lot] in common with the legendary 2010 vintage...a harmonious and gorgeous year for Brunellos." James Suckling

Receiving the coveted "Cellar Selection" designation, it is "immensely inviting...this opens with fragrant pipe tobacco, crushed berry, new leather and pressed violet aromas. On the palate, juicy black cherry, raspberry and cinnamon flavors, while orange zest accents and an energizing mineral note lift the finish. It's beautifully balanced...” Wine Enthusiast

This is a wine with beautiful aromas, vibrant fruit, lively acidity, and ultra-fine tannins. Enjoy! 


Summary

WINE ENTHUSIAST

98 / 100

"Cellar Selection"

"Immensely inviting, this opens with fragrant pipe tobacco, crushed berry, new leather and pressed violet aromas. On the palate, firm, refined tannins underpin juicy black cherry, raspberry and cinnamon flavors, while orange zest accents and an energizing mineral note lift the finish. It's beautifully balanced with bright acidity and will reward a bit of cellaring."
