Natalino del Prete Salice Salentino "Torre Nova" 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Decidedly funky on the nose and very ‘natural’ smelling. This shows of an array of medicinal, barnyard and earthy aromas that are super complex but not what many wine drinkers are looking for, all savory and spicy as opposed to being fruity. Light and fresh on entry, this offers subtle fruit, rather bright and juicy for Salice Salentino, with cranberry and sour cherry flavors laced with dried herbs, leather, fennel fronds and a touch of children’s vitamin. The backend gains a nice light, fresh tannic bite and some steely mineral notes. Fairly long on the finish, this remains a bit tannic but the fresh fruit, nicely strawberry toned, pops on the finish and lingers on the juicy finale. Smells like a hippy but is a brilliant little wine. 88pts
