The Salice Salentino is one of the most known Apulian wines, one of the first to leave the region, and is another wine in which the Negroamaro is the main grape, even though, in this case, it is the only grape. The Salice Salentino appellation does not require any ageing however, in this case, it undergoes a short period, just to add that extra bit to the wine. Like all Negroamaro based wines, the wine has a big fruity nose, and on the palate, is smooth, soft and full and matches perfectly southern rich dishes.
The artisan who made it
The De Falco winery, now with Gabriele the current generation, has years of experience producing high quality wines in the very heart of the Salento area, at the heel of Italy. Puglia is one of the largest wine regions in Italy and its truly fantastic climate not only produces native grapes but also provides the perfect environment to grow a large variety of international grapes, to produce big and bold wines.
