Wine of an intense red colour with garnet-coloured hints, made of Negroamaro and Malvasia Nera. To the nose fruity sensations of blackberry and black cherry, notes of basil and sweet spices due to the refinement in oak barrels. In the mouth it is smooth and balanced with a strong but never intrusive tannin. Long last fin-ish. Very good with roasts and ripe cheese..

An alluring mix of clove, allspice, ginger and dusty rose rises up from the 2017 Salice Salentino Riserva. It’s silky in texture yet lifted in feel, presenting a pure display of red and blue fruits giving way to exotic spices and sweet tannins that saturate toward the close. Notes of plum and licorice linger through the long, lightly structured finale. The Salice Salentino Riserva is a blend of 95% Negroamaro and 5% Malvasia Nera di Lecce. Best after 2021
