Ripe, spicy, savoury southern Salento wine here, with intriguing orange peel, cherries in eau-de-vie and old wood...

This is very nicely put together. Not dynamic or deep but correct with well integrated leather, ripe date fruit,...

It's only wine but I like it

Took a while to recalibrate my palate after largely focusing on wines from the south of France. A distinctive wine, with very good fruit, and the right amount of acidity and tannin for balance. Very fine value at $14. Drink now of hold short term.

The 2007 Rivera Salice Salentino, a Negroamaro blend, is light to medium bodied, with nice aromas of integrated cherry, cedar, vanilla and liquorice. Tannins are refined (decant for 15 to 30 min) and the finish is medium. It is good to drink now and can hold for another 5 years. My impression: NICE, 89 pts - excellent value for $11.35 (reduced from $13.95). Tasted Feb/11.
