On the jammy side, with syrupy cassis and blackberry compote notes flecked with hints of spice and smoke. Exhibits a round, heavy finish. Drink now.
This has to be one of my favorite recent finds. The 2010 La Corte Salice Salentino is a stunner. I did not expect such a delicious, full-bodied and bold wine with a perfectly smooth finish at this price point. Too often I have come across tight, bitter Italian reds that put a large grimace on my face that lasts until I can stop feeling fur on my tongue. La Corte Salice Salentino is made up of 85% Negroamaro and 15% Malvasia Nera grapes. The wine is produced in stainless steel and oak. It has a dark ruby color and is surprisingly quite jammy. Plum, dark berry, tobacco and even gingerbread greet the nose, and sweet and smoky fig lingers long after your first taste. This wine is excellent with crusty bread, tapenade, and Italian hard cheeses.
