Salice Salentino is one of the earliest established appellations in Italy, dating back to 1939. Made from a blend of 90% Negroamaro, a dark-skinned grape known for its tannic structure, and 10% Malvasia Nera. The grapes from these mature vines are hand-harvested, fermented in stainless steel and left to refine in large oak casks for six months before bottling.
This wine is ruby-red in color with expressive notes of ripe plum mingled with blackberry jam and sweet spice. On the palate, Maiana is full-bodied and robust.
A wonderful partner to roast game, beef, or hearty casseroles.
