2017 Mocavero Puteus Salice Salentino Riserva DOP ~ Red Wine
750 ml bottle
80% Negroamaro, 20% Malvasia Nera di Lecce grapes from the Salento area of Puglia. 12 months ageing in small oak barrels followed by six months in the bottle.
It is a gorgeous deep ruby red with hints of garnet. Aromas of ripe plum, dark fruit, spice, undergrowth, rhubarb, and licorice. This warm, rich, balanced wine with fine tannins evokes the very south of Italy.
Enjoy it with roasts, bbq meats, game, spicy dishes, a variety of cured meats, and aged cheeses
