Information about domain Conti Costanti

Located on the outskirts of the village of Montalcino, the Colli al Matrichese de Conti Constanti vineyard produces some of the most sought-after wines in the Brunello di Montalcino DOC, including the ultra-scarce Riserva. The Constanti family is intimately associated with the history of the village as it was involved in the wars between Florence and Sienna. The Constanti were ennobled in 1711 by the court of Venice for their bravery. Since then, from father to son, the family has been a standard bearer for the vineyard both in Italy and internationally. Andrea Constanti has been at the helm of the domaine since 1983. Wines have become even more delicate and complex.
