Castello Monaci Salice Salentino Liante 2007
Wine Advocate Review Rated 89 The estate's 2007 Salice Salentino Liante (Negroamaro, Malvasia Nera) possesses an intriguing array of dark red fruit, sweet herbs and licorice in a round, expansive style. Pretty notes of tobacco linger on the long finish. This, too, is an outstanding value. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2011. Wine Tasting Notes With intense, complex aromas of wild cherry conserve, dried plums, chocolate and vanilla, the wine shows powerful, ripe dark fruit and spices on the palate, with a pleasant finish. The wine is a great match with spicy foods like Fra Diavolo sauce.
