The Rich Legacy of Costanti Wines

Since its inception in 1983, Costanti wines have carried a profound legacy that continues to captivate wine enthusiasts worldwide. Established by the young and ambitious Andrea Costanti, the winery inherited a significant responsibility of upholding the distinguished quality of Montalcino's renowned labels during that era.

A Journey of Harmonious Expression

Over the years, Costanti wines have embodied an ever-growing manifestation of harmonious synergy between the land's characteristics, the unique vineyards producing Brunello, and Andrea Costanti's profound appreciation for wine. With a deep understanding of the wine-making process and an unwavering commitment to creating an exceptional experience, Andrea has meticulously developed the aromatic variety of the wines, striving for elegance and an impeccable bouquet.

The vineyards, situated at an altitude exceeding 400 meters, endure extreme temperature fluctuations, yielding even more exquisite aromas as a testament to Andrea's unwavering dedication.

Pioneering Excellence and Timeless Complexity

A visionary wine-maker, Andrea Costanti aspires to craft enduring and intricate wines that require ample time for maturation and are far from easy to produce. While honouring the cherished traditions of Brunello, Andrea consistently looks towards the future, embracing innovation as an essential aspect of his winemaking philosophy.

Moreover, the age of the vines, their unique biotypes, and the composition of the soil contribute to the creation of rich and long-lasting wines, firmly establishing their authenticity above fleeting trends.

A Glimpse into the Vineyards

Costanti's land spans across 25 hectares, comprising 12 hectares of vineyards, 4 hectares of olive groves, and the remaining areas encompass fallow land and woodland. These vineyards, located at an altitude ranging from 310 to 400 meters above sea level, have been meticulously selected to ensure optimal exposure.

The vineyards predominantly feature Sangiovese grapes, locally known as Brunello, ranging from 6 to 25 years old. Additionally, three hectares have recently been dedicated to cultivating Merlot and Cabernet. The land's organic poverty, coupled with its lithoid components, imparts a distinctive character to the wines. Geologically, the soil consists of galestro from the cretaceous era, further enhancing the vineyard's uniqueness. Plant density varies from 3,333 to 5,500 vines per hectare, reflecting a commitment to quality over quantity.

A Meticulous Winemaking Process

Harvesting typically commences at the beginning of October, signalling the start of an intricate fermentation process. The grapes undergo fermentation on the skins within stainless steel vats, with the duration ranging from 14 to 21 days, depending on the vintage.

The Brunello wines are aged in 30Hl Slavonian oak casks, ranging from 3 to 15 years old, as well as in 5Hl barriques. Younger wines find their maturation in three-year-old, 225 and 335-litre barriques crafted from medium-toast Allier oak.
