Alto Piemonte & Valtellina, Continued…

Keeping up with the fervent pace of change in Alto Piemonte and Valtellina is no easy task these days given the ever-increasing number of estates making fabulous, noteworthy wines. I had originally intended to add the producers in this report to my article Nebbiolo in Its Many Guises: Alto Piemonte & Valtellina, published earlier in the year, but as I tasted through the wines I became convinced these estates, many of them new to Vinous, deserved to be showcased in a separate article.

Vinous Favorites

2018 Luli Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands ($24.00) 91

2018 Luli Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands, 91 points

This balanced, spice-tinged Pinot Noir offers sappy red fruit and floral character, with a spine of juicy acidity keeping things lively. A bit of air stretches it out and brings up a hint of musky earth. Finding delicious Pinot in the SLH is easy, but real values are far harder to come by. (JR)

1919 Montrose

Obscure Bordeaux vintages are like the detritus of odds and ends you find at the back of the drawer you never open. The more forgotten or derided the annus horribilus, the more it piques my interest.
