Castel di Salve Priante Salento Rosso (2006) Puglia

Another spicy Italian red wine from Castel di Salve, the most southerly estate in Puglia run by the husband and wife team of Francesco Marra and Francesco Winspeare. The two began estate bottling small quantities of wine in the late 1980's and today, they have over 100 acres under vine; producing about 12,000 cases of seven different wines. The 2006 Priante is 50% Negroamaro and 50% Montepulciano. Aged in barriques for 12 months. Nice fruity nose of black fruits; deep color. Super-ripe. Very smooth, long finish. A very nice wine.
