HALF BOTTLES: RED

Red - BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO, Costanti. Tuscany, Italy (Half Bottle)

2011 BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO, Costanti. Tuscany, Italy (Half Bottle)

Alcohol Percentage: 14%
Area: Montalcino is a hill-top town in the warm, open country in southern Tuscany, about 45 minutes down from Siena. Although the key grape is the same as for Chianti Classico further north, the style is broader and more powerful
Grape Variety: 100% Sangiovese (here called Brunello); aged for 18 months in French oak (large oak, not new) and then for a further 18 months in very large, old Slovenian oak barrels
Producer: Costanti have just seven hectares of vineyard, next to the town of Montalcino. This is the higher, northern part of region and as a result the style is lighter and finer than the wines made from the warmer, low-lying areas
Vintage: 2011 Ripe year - the wines can be drunk young
Old Bridge Rating: Full-bodied with complex, earthy aromas. Still young however, so certainly worth decanting half an hour before drinking
