Conti Costanti Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2012

$67.95

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... Wine Enthusiast

This still needs a bit of time. Quite tart. Showed a lot of rose petal and tar upfront...maybe even some iron? Very underripe fresh squeezed blackberries and black cherry on the palate, with underbrush and cedar.

Not normally the biggest fan of Brunello but this was outstanding. Deep, dark fruits, a hint of leather, and incredibly surprising acidity.

Spicy cedar, cigar box on the nose. Sharp bright cherries with an iron and tar base. Smooth integrated tannins with a grapefruit pith tail and a long finish. Very nice.

We had this light bodied Brunello at Marcello’s. Raspberry and strawberry on the palate. No tannin, ready to drink out of the bottle. A more fruit forward Brunello.

This wine had really good black cherry aromatics along with a bit of a savory character. The entry of this wine is medium-bodied at best, and then it sort of descends into a hole in the middle. Makes a nice comeback in the finish, with some mint and black cherry. Very stiff youthful oak tannin finish. This seems to be a producer that sided on the Traditionalist side in the Barolo wars, and this is the side I typically prefer. However, this one just didn't have the complexity, no fault of its own. Will be a monster in 10 years.

Just freaking amazing! Still a bit young but really came together about two hours into it.
