Cantina Tombacco, Salice Salentino DOC, Riserva Rosso, 2012
Appearance – Dark, intense ruby red with garnet nuances.
Nose – an intense pleasant scent, with hints of ripe red fruits, along with spicy, woody notes.
Palate – at first this has plenty of body and is velvety, warm with a round, full finish. An excellent aftertaste combines a pleasant jammy flavour with toasted and spiced nuances.
Perfect to accompany meat-based first course, ideal with roast meat including poultry and worth trying with partridge. Very interesting pairing with medium-mature cheeses.
This wine ages well, beyond 5-6 years.
