Salice Salentino, Zolla,“Vigneti del Salento”DOC
Mmmm. It’s been a few years since I’ve tasted a Salice Salentino and it was great to reacquaint myself with this delight. Made from Negroamaro and Malvasia Nero this has everything you want from an Italian red – elegance, structure and power.
80% Negroamaro , 20% Malvasia Nera. Production is lower than its potential, which ensures the best quality grapes are selected. The red soils are calcerous clay and are rich in iron, minerals and nutrients. 80% of the grapes come from old bush vines and the rest from trained vines that are at least 20 years old.
Lovely ripe red cherry on the nose with plum and a hint of sweet spice and Mediterranean herbs. A little tight to begin with, this really opens up after half an hour in the glass and gives total pleasure from then on.
80% Negroamaro , 20% Malvasia Nera
