Natalie's Score: 90/100

From the Puglia wine region, Leone De Castris Salice Salentino Riserva 2016 is a full-bodied Negroamaro and Malvasia Nera red wine blend. So fragrant and juicy on the nose with dark berry, plum and citrus zest aromas. A big robust red with rich dark cherry, blackberry, blueberry, meaty, zesty flavours on the palate and chewy tannins. So good now but screaming for a rich meaty dish. Decant two hours prior to pouring with beef long ribs from the grill.

Food pairings: barbecued meats and mushrooms, hard cheese.

Harmonious Hard Cheese Wine
