Week #3 brings us Salice Salentino Riserva, 2010 by Cantele
I find it to be a very versatile wine, I'd pair it with lamb, veal, duck and even some seafood, specifically a chilean sea bass in a solid and flavorful preparation. To me, the Salice Salentino quickly reveals it's Italian heritage, of young love out for a picnic, rewarded with a warm day on a hillside overlooking the ocean far below them, one laying upon the other, sharing a day neither will forget. I'll bring the Salice on such a picnic, the next time I am fortunate enough to plan one. Ah, salut.
