Salice Salentino Riserva 2020, Francesco Candido


SKU: 35861348335 Categories: ,

This wine is a delightful ruby colour which develops hints of orange on the rim with maturity. The nose has distinctive aromas of cocoa and leather. On the palate, it has rich and warm black fruit notes, fig and well combined with the typical French oak aromas. On the finish a delicious creamy bitter-chocolate character, balanced by perfect amount of acidity and smoky oak, with superb length. Giacomo and Sandro Candido’s range is perhaps the most diverse and innovative to be found in Puglia. The climate is Mediterranean with low rainfall and ripening takes place slowly due to the striking contrast between day and night-time temperatures, resulting in a strong development of aromas, richness and concentration. This historic, family-owned property continues to amaze under the guiding hand of one of Italy’s top winemakers, Donato Lanati.
