This is a sophisticated Cabernet that is built for the long haul. Beautiful aromas of black cherry, vanilla bean, subtle spices evolve on the palate. There is marvelous tension and structure here, showcasing red berries, floral notes, and a core of cool minerality. Tasted over the course of eight hours, it gradually took on weight and richness. It is a pure, clean, and persistent wine. Tastes great tonight (after decanting an hour but will evolve beautifully in the cellar for 10+ years.
Di Costanzo is the independent project of Massimo Di Costanzo. In 2002 with a Viticulture and Enology diploma in hand he apprenticed on four continents eager to learn his craft and the culture of wine on the global stage. As a native Californian, he laid down roots in Napa Valley working for several small and esteemed estate wineries where he began to articulate his own winemaking vision, both philosophically and in the wine. In 2010, the first few cases of Di Costanzo Cabernet Sauvignon were produced and a dream realized.
