    Item no. 106153

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Intense ruby-red in color with garnet reflections, the wine has concentrated aromas of black cherries, plums and blackberries, along with spiced notes of vanilla and licorice. Particularly suitable for roasted red meat, aged steak cuts, rotisseries and aged cheeses.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2006 Salice Salentino Rosso Riserva 50th Vendemmia (Negroamaro, Malvasia Nera) is a very pretty, nuanced wine laced with wild cherries, plums, graphite and spices. Silky tannins frame an exceptional, elegant finish. This cask-aged Salice Salentino is a gem, not to mention an absolute steal for the money. The 50th Vendemmia celebrates the estate’s 50th vintage in grand style. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2016.
