"Great value ‘baby Amarone’ from the heel of Italy"

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 – as opposed to wines produced by co-operatives – the wines of the area are gaining their justified reputation. This wine is well structured and not too broad with a subtle dryness on the finish.
