There is nothing like a nice wine with a little spicyness in it's profile, and Salice Salentino fits the bill for that. This is a very normal version of this wine, and for the price it's not something bad to purchase a case of. It has the usual dryness of profile, with a nice cross between nutmeg and cinnamon, with a medium amount of tannins. The tannins kind of dilute the strength of any fruit, but this is an otherwise pleasant wine.

Our Mission: The Black Winer strives to expose African Americans [and others] to wines, without the flair, stuffiness, and airs of elitism and snobbery that you get from sommeliers and high level wine enthusiasts. We believe in finding something that you like the taste of, outside of the basic brands that you have been force-fed over the years through a combination of ethnically targeted advertising, and what people in your family have historically been drinking.
