Salice Salentino Rosso DOC Riserva, Leone de Castris
Salice Salentino Rosso DOC Riserva, Leone de Castris
Produced since 1954, the Salice Salentino Riserva has an intense ruby-red colour with garnet hints. Concentrated aromas of black cherries and blackberry complement notes of basil, and sweet spices thanks to the time in barrel. On the palate, the wine is smooth and balanced with velvety tannins. Long on the finish.
