Salice Salentino Liante Castello Monaci Iwc Puglia 2006

External Review by Morrell & Company:

This Salice Salentino is made from 80% Negroamaro and 20% Malvasia Nera. After the malolactic fermentation, the wine is blended and approximately half is aged in French barriques and the rest is aged in steel. The color is a deep ruby-red and the aroma is loaded with dried prunes, cherries and chocolate. This rich wine delivers a broad mouthful of dried cherries, plums and cassis along with some subtle minerality and smoke. There is good acidity paired with smooth tannins that contribute to a lingering, harmonious finish. This wine is a modern interpretation of an Old World Style. Pair this wine with some chicken and capers braised in spicy tomato sauce, and you will really appreciate this Southern Italian red.
