Donna Lisa Rosso

Salice Salentino Riserva DOC

Salice Salentino refined in barrique, of an intense red colour and garnet-coloured highlights. The nose has scents of blueberries and blackcurrant jam, spiced hints of vanilla, liquorice and a toasted touch. In the mouth it is full and velvety, rich of elegant tannins. Suggested with roasted meats, game and ripe cheeses.
