Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

The 2006 Leone De Castris Riserva Salice Salentino 50th Vintage, composed of 90% Negroamaro and 10% Malvasia Nera, is medium bodied, integrated wine with aromas of raspberry, cherry and oak. Upon opening, the wine remains quite closed and metallic for about an hour (decant between 1 to 2 hours), after which the body emerges, tannins (that are refined to tannic) settle down and the wine becomes nice and smooth with nicely balanced acidity and a medium to long finish. It should be laid down for few more years and can be cellared for another decade or so. My impression: NICE, 89 pts - recommended for tannin lovers; nice wine for good price. Tasted June/11.
