Tormaresca Masseria Maime Negroamaro Salento 2005
Bright ruby. Smoky, minerally aromas of red cherry, blackcurrant and plum, with hints of flowers and tobacco. Sweet, dense and youthfully unevolved, with harmonious acids giving lift to the wine's floral and mineral flavors—as well as to the sense of refinement the '06 Masseria Maime lacks. This impeccably balanced wine finishes long, pure and very clean.
This is a very pretty example of Negroamaro that has been shaped by warm oak tones of vanilla and spice. It's elegant and soft and delivers loads of succulent spice notes throughout.
