One of the Best-Value Wines in All of Tuscany: 2019 Colle Nero Tra Di Noi Rosso Di Montalcino DOCG

We all know that when it comes to exceptional Tuscan wine, Brunello di Montalcino is the King. And yes, Wine Spectator’s words are true when they said: “If you want to understand what great Italian wine all is about, buy a bottle of Brunello.”Brunello is all about class, elegance, status, age-ability, and grace…But you know what else is Brunello about? High-cost. 

A Brunello is a bottle of wine that you’d typically save for a special occasion, for a nice meal, or for a gift. And, don’t get me wrong, here at BHW, we absolutely LOVE Brunellos, we’re crazy about Brunellos. But let me ask you something, what happens when you find yourself looking for an amazing Tuscan wine to open on a Tuesday night and pair with your favorite pizza and TV show? Here’s where the magic of Rosso di Montalcino aka “Baby Brunello” comes in place. 

Magic is the perfect word to describe today’s offer: The 2019 Colle Nero Rosso di Montalcino.

Rossi di Montalcino is one of the best-value wines in all of Tuscany. And, because this wine is crafted with the same grape (Sangiovese Grosso) and comes from the same region in Montalcino as Brunello, you'll find enormous similarities between these two wines. James Suckling said, “It shares many of the qualities of Brunello: A complex flavor profile, fantastic with food, and is produced by many of the same top producers of Brunello. But you don’t have to wait long to enjoy it or pay a high price.”

This amazing and unique wine is crafted by Terre Nere, a family-owned and operated artisanal winery in the beautiful region of Montalcino. We are the exclusive importers of Colle Nero. We made this wine for us, but it's our pleasure to be sharing it with you. It's called Tra di Noi, which means "between us."

The family winery in Tuscany is a flagship estate in the Montalcino region. Started several decades ago by Salvatore and Vincenza Vallone as a farm that raised cattle and produced cheese and olive oil, their son Pasquale led the family into wine in 1996. He purchased an additional 37 acres of land, planted vines, and with the help of his brother Gaetano, Terre Nere produced its first Brunello di Montalcino in 2002. 

Terre Nere means “Black Land.” Its name comes from the black soil the vines grow in, close to Amiata, an extinct volcano. The Terre Nere team harvests grapes manually, sometimes carrying out several harvests in order to obtain the perfect ripeness for each small plot that’s vinified individually. The grapes ferment spontaneously on indigenous yeast. The vineyard and wines are organic and biodynamic certified.

This amazing 100% Sangiovese Grosso shows exciting aromas of cherries, berries, and violets. The elegance and finesse in the mouth are in perfect harmony with the expressive tannins. This wine shows great freshness and a good length.

Today’s the perfect chance to get this “Baby Brunello” from TOP winery in Montalcino, and at the best price anywhere!
