Wine Expert Note:

The Castello Monaci Salice Salentino Liante is a delightful red wine from the Salice Salentino region in Italy. It is made primarily from the Negroamaro grape variety, which is known for producing rich and full-bodied wines. On the nose, it offers an enticing bouquet of ripe blackberries, cherries, and plums, accompanied by hints of spice and tobacco. On the palate, this wine showcases a harmonious balance between its fruitiness and its well-integrated tannins. The flavors of dark berries and plums are complemented by notes of vanilla and black pepper, adding complexity to the overall profile. The Liante has a medium to full body, with a smooth and velvety texture that lingers on the finish. This wine is best enjoyed with hearty dishes such as grilled meats, pasta with rich tomato-based sauces, or aged cheeses. It can also be savored on its own, allowing its flavors to unfold and evolve with each sip.
