Salice Salentino Negroamaro Doc Riserva
Tradition and respect for the land can be found in this riserva. A careful and reasonable dosage of woods and a 24-months-ageing give life to one of the most appreciated and awarded wine in the world.It has a unique and austere character and is obtained by using grapes coming from some old negroamaro alberellos. Particularly bright and full-bodied red wine with walnut husk and Mediterranean herbs in the nose. Soft tannins and balsamic hints on the palate.
