Terre Nere Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2012
RISERVA. BRUNELLO. Two words that bring with them a blast of anticipatory warmth in the gut and an unbridled serotonin-releasing excitement, oh yes! The 2012 Riserva (93 POINTS!) has landed, direct from the winery -- at OVER 50% OFF!! Special occasion awesomeness at its finest! Wow! You just don’t see Riservas in this price range ever!
Terre Nere is a Last Bottle all-time fave, a wine we bring in every year direct --- and as soon as we started, they started getting the BIG PRESS, so we are stoked to have found it early!! Likely, most of you savvy types will already be snapping this up --- it’s a small parcel and not much to go around before we move into the 13s and 14s, so if you are new to LB --- well, just GET THIS!! What a price!!! 93 points!
This 2012 Brunello Riserva is bolder and sexier than the utterly irresistable 2011 we offered last year --- darker in body and color and maxed out with deep wild blackberries, cherry jam, dried flowers, a hint of orange, mocha, earth, and sweet grilled herbs…ah…! YES! Rich and powerful, wonderfully concentrated and long. We love it!! Please just get a few while they are in the warehouse! Woo hoo!
