Conti Costanti

Andrea Costanti is at the top of his game. This is an utterly compelling range of wines. Both Rossos I tasted capture the essence of the house style and this site in the center of town, that judging by appearances alone and its location across the road from a gas station, gives absolutely no indication as to the magic in its soils. The Costanti Brunellos capture the essence of Sangiovese from Montalcino at its most refined. As good as the Brunellos are, the Costanti Rosso is every bit as pedigreed and delicious.” – ANTONIO GALLONI

Conti Costanti – The Count of Montalcino. The noble Costanti family goes back a long way – at least to Renaissance times. Conti Costanti has been heralded as one of the most historic and greatest producers of Brunello di Montalcino.

After maximizing the winery’s potential and releasing the first “public” vintages, Emilio Costanti traced the sole living descendant of the ancient Sienese family, Andrea Costanti, a fresh graduate in geology at the University of Siena with no background in wine.

Andrea was appointed the legendary count’s heir and successor in 1983 and immediately proved himself well worthy of Emilio’s trust.

He not only handled his huge new responsibilities, but actually upgraded and enhanced the family’s reputation for making great Brunello.

Today, he is one of the brightest names in Montalcino in his own right, and the happy father of numerous, budding new branches in the Costanti family tree.
