Li Veli Passamante Salento Negroamaro 2008 IGT

From Salento in Puglia this 100% Negroamaro is aged for six months in French oak and six months in bottle.

On the noses, red roses... with fresh herbs and juicy red flavors that are fruit forward but show a slight undertone of citrus and even slighter of cherry powdered candy (kind of like "Pixie Stix" candy from childhood years) in the back end. Finishes like butter and with good balance.
