Salice Salentino

Intense ruby red in color with garnet reflections, the wine has fragrances of dark red fruits, such as plums and blackberries and s enriched by spiced notes of vanilla and licorice. Particularly suitable for roasted red meats and aged cheeses and game.

Ippolito 1845 'Liber Pater' Ciro Rosso Classico 100% Gaglioppo, silky smooth yet meaty and earthy in the mode of aged Barolo or Rioja, this wine is named for the Italian god of wine and vines and he is pictured on the label in full armor and wielding a BIG sword to defend that style from any invading modernist tendencies. Bravo Bello!
