Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

The 2008 Cantine De Falco Salore Salice Salentino Rosso is composed of 80% Negroamaro and 20% Malvasia Nera and was aged 8 months in oak barrels. It is a light to medium bodied, integrated wine, with intense aromas of raspberry, red currant, cedar, liquorice and oak. It has a nice structure with good acidity, refined/yet forward tannins (decant for 30 min) and a long finish. Drink now or cellar for the next 10 years and as it evolves it should gain in complexity, earning one or two more points. This wine is food friendly with Italian or other non spicy foods, or can be simply enjoyed by itself if you cherish good tannic structure. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 91 pts - recommended buy as this wine easily compares to Brunello's (though cosisting of different grapes) for fraction of their price; buy buy buy. Aug/12.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
