Wine Advocate Review Rated 90 The 2010 Salice Salentino Riserva 50 Vendemmia is a bargain-blend of 90% Negroamaro and 10% Malvasia Nera di Lecce that is aged in large oak casks for 12 months. The wine shows elegant, simple lines with focused fruit flavors and delicate oak integration. Amarena cherry, dried flowers, spice and licorice lift from the bouquet. In the mouth, this 50th anniversary celebratory wine feels tight, muscular and streamlined.
Wine Tasting Notes Wine of an intense red color with garnet-colored hints, made of Negroamaro and Malvasia Nera. To the nose fruity sensations of blackberry and black cherry, notes of basil and sweet spices due to the refinement in oak barrels. In the mouth it is smooth and balanced with a strong but never intrusive tannin. Long last finish. Very good with roasts and ripe cheese.
