100% Negroamaro. Translated to english as “bitter black,” this Puglian grape was shipped to the colder regions of Italy to fortify and color lighter reds. This robust varietal wine, aged exclusively in older oak barrels, exhibits vibrant acidity with balanced fruit and earth flavors. Youthful and expressive, this wine can be enjoyed with a rustic meal or simply on its own.
89 Points - "The 2014 Salice Salentino Riserva is a heavy and concentrated wine with prune, raisin and blackberry jelly. The wine is hearty and dense with sweet flavors on the finish that are interwoven tightly with equally savory characteristics. Despite those big bones, this wine from Cantele ultimately offers good balance and a very clean and correct drinking style. It a great value, too." - Monica Larner (Wine Advocate, Aug 2017)
