La Casada Salice Salentino 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

When we think of Negroamaro we taste in our mind's tongue a vinous version of valrona-shocked espresso. This is not such a wine. Where you expect bitterness there is softness. The characteristic “scorched earth” quality is also absent. The wine is pleasant, round and just peppery enough to remind one of its Mediterranean origins, but just don't expect to be able to headbang to it. The Salice is an interesting wine, a blend of Negroamaro and Malvasia Nero. An appealing nose of sweet cherries and stewed plums with some curious gamey notes.
