A good ordinary Salice, Balaance, light, and earthy. Eat with paste and Tomatos , maybe pizza.
Dull brick red with burnt orange rim, aromas of dried cherries, plums and red berries with baking spices, dried stone fruits, earth and leather with baking spice on palate with focused, balanced personality to a long finish. The BOMB! This '04 Reserva is still available from some specialty retailers. Don't pass up on this great value food wine from Apulia!
I was first exposed to Salice Salentino while dinning in a quaint, but very comfortable, restaurant in Amsterdam. A colleague told me the story of he and his wife recently traveling to southeastern Italy on vacation and having tried this blended wine. I fell in love with it immediately and have purchased (and consumed) several bottles since first tasting it in 2009. Our local wine source no longer stocks it. I am searching for a convenient (and inexpensive) supply near Houston, Tx.
Great delicious wine I enjoyed at frankies spuntino this week. Fruit but also quite complex
Had this wine at Pizzeria Mozza in Los Angeles. Excellent wine for the value, and was perfectly paired with pizza and other Italian odds and ends!
