Salice Salentino "Posta Piana" - Cantine Paradiso

Salice Salentino is a small medieval town north-west of Lecce in Italy’s heal. The name Salice comes from the Italian for willow and refers to the extensive planting of this tree in the area from the Middle Ages. Up until the 1980s this part of Italy was best known for bulk wines. Now with private, family owned producers such a Cantine Paradiso – in contrast to the vast amount of wine produced by co-operative – the wines of the area are gaining their justified reputation. 

80% Negramaro, 20% Malvasia Nera the wine shows an aromatic, herbal nose with dry plums and a well structured, soft palate and a subtle dryness on the finish.
