Food Pairings for Epicuro Salice Salentino Riserva
This is a big wine, not only soft, spicy, and fruity but also a bit harsh, probably from the acids. Nose, taste, and acid improved vacu-corked in the fridge over seven (7) days (you read that right). Nice nose with mild floral, strong spice, backed by almost a salt air and acid aroma with indistinct mild fruit. In the mouth the fruit is chewy and lasts a long time if you swish it about, like chewing rich gum berries. Taste is also quite acidic, not so much tannin, plus an orange flavor with a bit of mineral and earth. Finish is mostly an acidic hum with a hint of orange. You'd need a hearty southern Italian dish to pair with this wine.
Day twenty (20) of vacu-cork in the fridge and this is still interesting to drink. Acid and tannins have faded but the fruit is still awesome, black cherry and blackberry along with strong dose of tea made from flowers and sweetened. I assume the flowers come from the Black Malvasia. Never tasted such and I'll keep the bottle for a few more days given this flavor.
