Near-opaque ruby color.
Cherry / plum smell, with some oak.
Cherries and prunes in the smooth flavor, with some oak, a bit of cleansing bitterness in the finish.
Pleasant full-bodied dry red, a good match for flavorful "peasant" food, this'll stand up pretty well to tomato sauce, which requires a fairly big red.
The next day still smooth and full of flavor.
I'd buy again for $11.99, this is a good bargain.
This map shows that Salice Salentino is grown in the "heel" or the Italian boot: Puglia.
