External Reviews for Castello Monaci Negroamaro Salice Salentino
There's enough fresh blackberry and plum fruit to carry a hint of bitter almond on the minerally finish. Drink now.
The 2008 Salice Salentino Liante is a 80% Negroamaro and 20% Malvasia Nera blend partially aged in oak. This sleek, harmonious red floats across the palate with silky fruit, sweet herbs and spices. Year in year out the Liante is a great value, as it is again in 2008. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2012.
This Salice Salentino hits a nice balance between mineral nuances and fruit tones, making for a very food-friendly combination. The wine has a smooth texture with flavors of spice, tea and currant berry.
The estateandrsquo;s 2006 Salice Salentino Liante (80% Negroamaro, 20% Malvasia) is another beauty. Made in a very sweet, ripe style, it offers notes of plums, prunes, leather, tar, smoke and earthiness. It should continue to drink well over the next several years. Anticipated maturity: 2008andndash;2011.
