Wine EnthusiastThis savory red delivers aromas and flavors of mature black plum, juicy blackberry, licorice and a hint of tobacco. A note of bitter prune accents the firm, succulent finish.

Wine AdvocateBold cherry and dried blackberry are the primary aromas to emerge from the nose of the 2013 Salice Salentino Maiana. The bouquet shows primary fruit with jammy overtones of prune, black plum and raisin. Soft oak tones of spice, cinnamon and clove also shape the aromatic profile and render a feeling of softness and plushness on the palate. Drink this Salice Salentino within the next three years. This is an unbeatable value buy.

Wine SpectatorRipe boysenberry and plum fruit is laced with delicate acidity and flavors of fresh earth, ground spice and grilled herbs. Offers pleasant, light grip on the finish. Drink now through 2016. 2,500 cases made.
