Castello Monaci 2006 Liante Salice Salentino

A rustic red blend of Negroamaro and Malvesia Nera grapes from the Salice Salentino DOC growing region in the heel of Italy’s boot. This oddly satisfying kinship yields a robust, meaty wine tasting of roasted cherries, black tar, and licorice with a raisin-y, acidic finish. Modest tannins that meld better when washing down food. 3.5 stars out of 5. Sweetness=1 out of 10 (dry to sweet). $12
