The winery’s star Rosso di Montalcino. Vermiglio is an ancient Italian word made popular by the likes of Boccaccio and Dante Alighieri, used to describe a type of vibrant or bright red. Andrea Costanti’s Vermiglio Rosso di Montalcino certainly is vibrant and bright. It ages twelve months in tonneaux and twelve months in Slavonian oak barrels and is a wonderful addition to anyone’s cellar.
