COSTANTI 2008 BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO

WINE ADVOCATE 93 - Andrea Costanti is one of the most consistent growers in Montalcino, and it shows in the 2008 Brunello di Montalcino, a wine that impresses for its elegance, finesse and harmony. Sweet dark cherries, tobacco, licorice and savory herbs all flesh out in the glass. Surprisingly pliant and generous for the year, the 2008 is a model of class and pure pedigree. Approachable today, the 2008 should have no problem aging gracefully to age 20 and likely beyond. It is without question one of the few great wines of the year. Spiced notes flesh out on the generous, seductive finish. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023.

INTERNATIONAL WINE CELLAR 92 - "Medium red,with a faint amber aspect. Pure, highly expressive aromas of spicy strawberry, marzipan and underbrush. Then sweet, seamless and elegantly styled, with a perfumed quality and sneaky energy to its minerally red fruit and underbrush flavors. Impressively suave and pure, this very well balanced wine finishes with a classic tannic spine and juicy acidity."
