WA 93 WE 91 Pts - According to Wine Advocate - 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.
According to Wine Enthusiast - There’s a savory, almost chewy side to this Brunello that is enhanced by aromas of tobacco, spice, dark cola, licorice, blackberry and currant. The wine shows balance and intensity with a soft, plush feel in the mouth that stands in pleasing contrast against to wine’s young tannins and acidity.
According to Wine Spectator - A supple version, laced with cherry, plum and briar notes. The structure exhibits more acidity than tannins, with a firm, lingering finish. Best from 2015 through 2029. 14% ABV. Rated 90+
