[ ] Lots of tannins, solid acid makes me wish I had waited to open this. Spicy, lush red fruits and a bit of funkyness. This is good! I cant say its perfect.... — a month ago
Wonderful cherry crumble, plum, and oaked vanilla. Nice notes of undergrowth to balance things out making sure things aren't too fruity cherry sweet. Nice mouth feel, a bit light / medium bodied and lacking some tannins. Overall, very enjoyable — 4 months ago

Superbly balanced Salice Salento, bought at a bargain in the UK. Ok it's London, so a relative £10 "bargain" *Sigh* . Aromas of oaky vanilla, black cherry, some funky herbal +clove + tobacco. Tastes a balanced black plum and cherry, am I dreaming a bit of toastyness? Chocolates. All things fun and nice. Decant 45m to 1hr. drinking in Oct 2018 — 2 months ago
