Made from the Negroamaro grape in the region of Apulia, in Southern Italy, this delicious wine represents great value. Black fruit flavors combine with a slight herbal edge and finishes with firm tannins.


Winemaker's Notes:

Score: N/A Tasting Notes: Wine Description A blend of Negroamaro and small quantities of Malvasia Nera from the Salento area (the very end of Italy’s boot heel). A five day maceration with the skins ensures fruitiness and ideal color extraction. The wine is aged for two years, with 20% of it being refined in French barriques (Allier, Nevers and Tronçais) to add extra elegance, and it is filtered before bottling. Tasting Notes A wine of unmistakable personality, Taurino’s Salice Salentino has introduced many Americans to the pleasure of Apulian wine. Intense ruby red in color with orange reflections, its unique flavor profile offers red berries, herbs and black cherries. On the palate, it is dry, well balanced and full bodied with a slight bitterness on the finish. This wine is the perfect match for typical Italian dishes like pizza, pasta, sausages, salami and sharp cheeses. Though not as “flashy” as some of the newer, internationalstyle wines to emerge from Italy, Salice Salentino continues to be a favorite of Italian wine traditionalists. It is consistently one of Winebow’s best sellers. Web Site: " TARGET="New">Click Here
