The 2009 Liante Salice Salentino is deep ruby red in color with an expressive bouquet of plum, spice and vanilla. Rich and pure in the mouth with mixed berry, cedar and smoke.
Liante or "Wind of the Levant", the icy wind of winter and the hot one of the summer which blows strongly over much of the Adriatic and particuarly Puglia, is the name chosen for the Salice Salentino, from Negromaro and Malvasia nera di Lecce grapes, vinified separately. Part of the wine matures in French barriques, while the remainder stays in stainless steel.
"The 2009 Salice Salentino Liante (Negroamaro, Malvasia Nera) is a sleek red. Nothing in particular stands out, just the wine's impeccable textural polish. Ideally, the Liante might show a little more varietal character, but that is a relatively small critique for a wine at this price point. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2013."
