We were thrilled to read that Chicago-based wine and travel writer Rob Frisch, author of the popular wine blog Odd Bacchus, had selected the 2009 Salice Salentino Riserva as one of his “top reds in 2013.”
Here’s what Rob Had to say about the wine…
According to The Sotheby’s Wine Encyclopedia, the best wines in Italy’s Salice Salentino DOC are its Negroamaro-based reds, and the Cantele certainly did not disappoint.
This 100% Negroamaro had tight, powdery red-fruit aroma and ample fruit on the palate.
I got a blast of cherries, and others in the group also tasted currants and raisins.
Rich but bright, this full-bodied wine had well-balanced, rustic acids and some serious tannins on the finish.
