Esquire (UK) - - Contents -

Puy-de-Dôme Pinot Noir, 2016, France The light­est of reds can so eas­ily be done un­sat­is­fac­to­rily, but cheap — in this case — can still be cheer­ful.

Con­stan­tia Glen Five, 2011, South Africa

A blend of five Bordeaux grape va­ri­eties, grown in the balmy shadow of Ta­ble Moun­tain. Plenty of oomph, but el­e­gant. £27; bbr.com Valle Reale, Sant’Eu­sanio, Mon­tepul­ciano D’Abruzzo, 2015, Italy

Rec­om­mended by Mickey Fal­lowes, man­ager of Pas­sione Vino “A deep, dark, juicy and con­cen­trated

100 per cent moun­tain Mon­tepul­ciano from a tiny par­cel of land within Abruzzo Na­tional Park, 500m above sea level. Made only from ex­cep­tional vin­tages, Sant’Eu­sanio has silky smooth tan­nins, vi­brant acid­ity and black for­est fruits. Pairs well with rich dark meats and savoury dishes but equally as de­li­cious as a con­tem­pla­tion wine.”
