Cantina Tombacco Salice Salentino Riserva

One of the great appellations of Puglia - the 'heel of the boot' of Italy famous for opulent sunkissed reds from Negroamaro and Primitivo. This is a juicy full bodied wine, a guilty pleasure in our house. This is the last of this wine, as it is no longer produced at the winery.

The Salice Salentino appellation requires a minimum of 85% Negroamaro, typically blended with smaller amounts of Primitivo and sometimes Malvasia. It is a modestly sized region by Italian standards, roughly 50% bigger than Martinborough for comparison.

With its intense ruby red colour, Salice Salentino displays at once its decisive, full character. Traces of red fruits enriched with nuances of spices and wood, the taste is warm and velvety, with spicy and toasted notes.
