Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2004

Area: Italy
Grape: 85% Negroamero, 15% Malvasia Nera
Alcohol: 14%
Rating: Black 90 Dilettante 90

Descripton: Aromas of purple flowers, smoke and plums lead the attack of burnt raw sugar. Chewy and earthy, this Old World style wine is loaded with chocolate dipped dark fruits, moon flowers, amber, tea and cassis. Bitter undertones and a vibrant acidity balance this wine nicely. We will certainly buy this one again. Decanting for 35 minutes brings out a nice depth.

Price: $9 wow
