Salice Salentino Rosso DOC Riserva 2006

External Review by Great Wines Direct:

Blackberry and black cherry, hints of basil and sweet spices due to the aging in barrels.The Leone de Castris winery, based in Salice Salentino, was founded in 1665 by Duke Oronzo, Earl of Lemos and is an intrinsic part of the history of wine-making in the Southern Italian region of Puglia.Grapes: 90% Negroamaro and 10% Malvasia Nera di LecceRegion: Italy / Puglia / SalentoMaker: Riccardo Cotarella and Marco MascellaniNotes: Intense garnet colour wine, derived from grapes Negroamaro and Malvasia Nera. The nose shows blackberry and black cherry, hints of basil and sweet spices due to the aging in barrels. In the mouth it is soft and balanced with firm but never intrusive tannins. Long finish.Serve: At 16-18c it is the perfect partner to roast game, beef or hearty casseroles..ABV: 13%
