Leone de Castris Salice Salentino Riserva 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

Intense ruby-red in color, the nose offers layered aromas of blackberry jam, sweet spice, vanilla, licorice and toast. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, flavorful and velvety with elegant, fine-grained tannins.

If you read the winemaker's notes you'll find it is one of those rare descriptions that actually fit. I might add that there is a sweetish black cherry tannin finish that is really nice at the end. 87 points - drink now - Paul
