Terroir and Determination: Vino Nobile di Montepulciano

There was a time when Vino Nobile di Montepulciano would have been lumped into an article of assorted Tuscan villages and wines. The work producers have put into improving their wines is increasingly evident. However, there are still hurdles the region needs to cross.

Moor Hall, Lancashire, UK

Moor Hall completely blew me away; lofty expectations surpassed and then some. It takes the best parts of its peers and combines them into something greater.

2019 Leone de Castris Salice Salentino Riserva

2019 Leone de Castris Salice Salentino Riserva, 90 points

The 2019 Salice Salentino Riserva opens with black cherry and plum complemented by sweet herbs and tobacco. This is silky-smooth and rich, with ripe dark fruits and exotic spices. The Riserva leaves a staining of primary concentration while finishing lightly structured and energetic. (EG)

1986 Pape Clément

I don’t drink enough mature Pessac-Léognan. I’m not alone there. It’s one of Bordeaux’s overlooked genres of wine. You do not see bottles as often as their Pauillac or Saint-Julien counterparts, as Pessac-Léognan wines do not garner the same reverence, for whatever reason. Meeting up with a friend, newly liberated from Hong Kong, we tasted this little gem.
