    Deep red. Ripe red cherry, sweet spices, licorice and leather notes are lifted by violet and quinine. Enters rich and round, then more austere in the middle, with hints of tar complementing the red cherry and underbrush flavors. Finishes long with beautiful acid-alcohol-tannin balance. This is really of the same quality level of a good Brunello. Vermiglio is the old name of the Rosso di Montalcino that was traditionally used by the Costanti household decades ago and that owner Andrea Costanti brought back to life with the 2014 vintage (in which he did not make his Brunello, opting instead to make a fuller-bodied Rosso aged in oak). This was aged one year in 500 liters tonneaux (only a minimal part of which are new) and one year in very large and old barrels. An outstanding result in a very hot year (the 2017 vintage is the earliest one in which Andrea picked grapes, beginning on September 11). As good as this is, it will benefit and improve further with another year in the cellar (Costanti won't be selling it until April 2020). Score - 92. (Ian D'Agata, vinous.com, April 2020)
