Say it with us! Loud and proud! BRUNELLO!! Over 50% off! 97 POINTS!! Glory be!!


Francesca Vallone is one of the forces behind the HUGE up-and-coming Terre Nere (but if you’ve been an LB customer for a while you know all about these luscious Brunellos!!!). 97 POINTS, absolutely delicious price, and holy moly, wait until you TASTE it!


BUT. BUT. Terre Nere is getting noticed since we discovered them some years back and we have LESS than normal. We do suggest moving with alacrity…


OK. Our love for this wine is deep and wide -- it is so intense, yet bright and complex and layered. Deep dark plum, sandalwood and citrus oils, cherry skin and loamy earth, even a cool caramel-coated toasted nut note, amazing. Make a lasagna. Better yet, make Terre Nere’s version (we had it at their place some years ago) -- pear and ricotta lasagna. Open a bottle of this. Marvel that you drink at this level for this price (heck, we STILL do and we’ve been in the biz for decades!).

“Fresh and balsamic, it shows a profile rich in identity that certainly does not go unnoticed. Hibiscus flowers and magnolia blend with notes of crumbled stone, white pepper and eucalyptus leaves. Full body, perfectly integrated and polymerized silky tannins and a finish of impressive drinkability and performing lightness. The closure shows a pronounced aftertasting of great pleasure. Best from 2021.”

“Aromas of violet, leather and underbrush lead the nose. The forward, juicy palate offers mature black cherry, white pepper and cinnamon alongside polished tannins. Drink through 2029.”

“The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino wafts up pretty flowery perfumes with hints of clove, allspice and dusty black cherries. It’s silky and seamless in the mouth, with an elegant expression of polished red fruits offset by hints of sour citrus and spice, as inner florals amass toward the close. Classically dry and lightly structured, this finishes on refinement and purity but with the potential for medium-term cellaring. This is one of the best young wines I’ve ever tasted from Terre Nere.”
