Dusty red berry. Medium body, firm tannins that are not overly aggressive. Great bargain Red from Puglia with minimum 2 years oak aging.

100% Negroamaro, the native grape of Puglia. Awesome Italian value under $15. Medium bodied. Bold taste and aromas. Prune, cassis, blackberry, vanilla, and a touch of graphite.

Brilliant red and black bite, polished and modern but retains rustic heritage. Dark, fresh and delicious.

Transparent brilliant ruby purple. Blackberry with hints of vanilla on the nose. Echoed on the palate with bright, medium plus acidity. Short-ish finish, but this is a food wine. Drink in the year.

Garnet, fruity, well-balanced, and an overall really fantastic expression of negroamaro and what Salice Salentino can be.

helluva lotta bang for the buck! black fruits- ripe but certainly not jammy. medium acid, dusty integrated tannins. Surprised everyone I tasted with when I told the price. 13 retail.

the weight and structure really took me by surprise - immediately made me think of Burgundy. Elegant and yet a little rustic. Loaded with flavor yet quite light on the palate. black and purple fruits. medium + acid, firm but open tannins
