Rosso Riserva, Cosimo Taurino '10, Salice Salentino, Puglia, Italy$26.00
90% Negroamaro, 10% Malvasia Nera Winemaker Notes: Salice Salentino is a small town in Apulia, the heel of Italy and the name of this DOC wine. The wines are not trained and are severely pruned, thereby reducing yields and forcing all the vitality of the plant onto a small amount of fruit. The wines made from these grapes are generous, fruity, and full of extract. Subject to only minimal filtration before bottling in order to preserve all the characteristics of the product, which, unusual for this area, are aged in small oak barriques for about six months. Serve Salice Salentino at room temperature with traditional Italian dishes, steaks, and roasts.
