|Region:||Italy » Puglia » Salice Salentino|
Ruby hue with aromas of dried plums, wet tree bark and earth; dried stone fruits with integrated structure across a palate with tea and chocolate for a moderately long finish. Great Negroamaro value.
|Region:||Italy » Apulia|
|Varietal:||Negroamaro , Malvasia|
Chalky and a bit astringent on the nose with an unusual spice note that melds cedar with iris, grilled beef, and beet root. Fascinating on the nose. In the mouth this is medium plus bodied and yet it remains quite light on it’s feet with early suggest...

Happy new year everyone! Have been MIA for awhile but back in drinking great wines everyday! Starting off with this new varietal I haven't had, Negroamaro! http://dionyshius.blogspot.com/2017/01/new-varietal-for-new-year.html Read More
Intriguing, smoky notes of forest floor and farmyard on the nose with dark plum and blackberry with some ripe red apple. Assertive and red fruited on the palate with tart raspberry and cherry notes and hints of clove and loamy earth. This is full and fresh with pert acidity, finishing with a warm medicinal note.

1st things 1st - I was screwing around with another photo and accidentally put up the correct one - my bad. "We call these the "Baby Portos of Italy". After aging properly there is a sweetness that combines with the plush dark berry fruits that when added to the tannic and acidic structure just remind us of baby port wines. Well done "- Paul.88 ...

Nicely done! BTW, Emark isn't the only one with a few wines on hand ... purchased grapes--but the Salice Salentino is a good pizza wine and the Nero d'Avola is okay, too. One wine I buy almost every winter at Trader Joe's is Castillero del Diablo's Carmenere. It's a really good introduction to that grape, a former standout (even over Malbec... Read More
Settled for a very generic Salice Salentino last night. We'll drink the Perbacco when we get back from Mexico. It's been my fall back for young Nebbiolo for a few vintages, although I found some non-DOCG last summer and a Gattinara that fit the bill, too. I'm probably a little unusual in liking young Nebbiolo but I could sub it in for lesser ... Read More
A hint of molasses and cherry on the nose with a clump of earth as well. Easy drinking style and quite fruity, with pleasant red berry and cherry notes and a finish with a touch of clay. 86 pts. Read More
Hello, I like wine. I'm originally from the UK though I've lived ... Morellino di Scansano, and Salice Salentino.I'm also a fan of Sauternes which is what led me here in my search for discovering which to get from my local supermarket; a 2003 or a 2005. Call me Richar Read More
So I am going to take your side on some things, AS, but I wouldn't call a ... ... a decent introduction to Salice Salentino, Aglianico, and Nero d'Avola and it's all about $5. There was a Nero d'Avola even cheaper (can't recall the name right now) that was even better. The Casillero del Diablo Carmenere is a really good example of that grape... Read More

Chalky and a bit astringent on the nose with an unusual spice note that melds cedar with iris, grilled beef, and beet root. Fascinating on the nose. In the mouth this is medium plus bodied and yet it remains quite light on its feet with early suggestions of leather and juniper on the palate followed by slight bitter and earthy, if clear and fre...
