Winemaker Notes

Salice Salentino Riserva is a wine of intense red color with garnet colored hints, made of Negroamaro and Malvasia Nera. On the nose, fruity sensations of blackberry and black cherry, and notes of basil and sweet spices due to the refinement in oak barrels. In the mouth it is smooth and balanced with strong but never intrusive tannis and a long lasting finish.

Critical Acclaim

RP 91
The Wine Advocate

The 2007 Salice Salentino Riserva 50th Vendemmia is big, powerful and super intense. Ripe black fruits, licorice, smoke, ash and game come through in this assertive Salice Salentino. Silky tannins round out the finish. As the name states, the 50th Vendemmia celebrates the estate's 50th harvest. The Riserva is 90% Negroamaro and 10% Malvasia Nera, aged in neutral French oak. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022.
