Italy: Regional Italy: Salice Salentino

What is Salice Salentino?
Salice Salentino is one of the best wine regions in Apulia—the heel of the boot. It is a rich, rustic red made from the Negroamaro grape. Some producers age the wines for an extended period in wood. The wines feature distinctive, spicy, gamey, almost-porty flavors and invariably show lots of character given their relatively inexpensive price tags. The region is certainly on the list of Italy’s best wine values.
