Terre Nere Brunello di Montalcino 2013
Buonosera Francesca! (it is evening in Italy) --- your Brunello ‘13 hits America!! Molte grazie for dinner in Verona last week!
Francesca 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!!!). 93 POINTS, absolutely delicious price, and holy moly, wait until you TASTE it!
Brunello! We pine for it. After a week in Italy though, tasting all these glorious wines, we are STOKED to get this in YOUR hands -- ‘13 is a killer vintage and this is just a baby (drink it now or over the next decade), but you NEED to have the wine. NOW! What a price!
Walnuts. CHERRIES! How many kinds of cherries are there? Dried cherry, too, and cranberry, and lip-smacking red plums...mmmm!!! Complex and long, with a nice round middle texture and a savory, long, juicy finish. AHHH! Brunello!! We never get enough, so PLEASE do what you can to snag some...while it lasts…!
The Estate of Terre Nere Campigli Vallone was born from
years of experience and mirrors the personality of our family and staff.
Everything comes from the intuition and passion for rural traditions and values
that owner Pasquale Vallone has had since his youth, elements that have brought
about evolution in agriculture and specifically in viticulture. This passion
stems from Pasquale’s earliest experiences in his family, who have always been
dedicated to self-realization by working in, and with, nature.

About The Producer
Terre Nere estate stretches over 15 hectares (37 acres), at an elevation of 280
meters, 10 km south-east of Montalcino. Ten hectares (25 acres) are planted in
vines near the hamlet of Castelnuovo dell’Abate, on the slopes below the
hilltop Castle of Velona. These 10 hectares, including 9 of Sangiovese and 1 of
Cabernet Sauvignon, are grown in pruned spur, cordon trained rows with a
density of roughly 4500 vines/hectare. The vineyards are nestled in a setting
of rare beauty, surrounded by pristine forests and where there is a micro
climate ideal for vine cultivation. All the vineyards are in hilly areas and
enjoy excellent sun exposure while being embraced by a constantly blowing
breeze provided by Monte Amiata and Monte Nero.
Pairs wonderfully with grilled red meats, game, aged cheeses and succulent first courses.
