If you're after an Italian red on the lighter side which still delivers impressive structure, look no further! Fresh, fruity and flirty, this Salice Salentino is just what the doctor ordered.

'Vereto' is a light to medium-bodied wine made from 100% Negroamaro grapes from the town of Salice Salentino in the Province of Lecce, in Puglia's sun-drenched south. It’s a warm, generous, satisfying and genuinely complex red from one of the leading estates in the area. It boasts a mature, complex nose of dark fruits, spice and savoury notes. On the palate, layers of cherry, bitter plum and dried fruit characters combine with spice and liquorice leading to a fresh finish with perfectly balanced acidity.

The Negroamaro grapes are grown on gnarly old bush vines in Vallone’s Iore estate. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel, and then the wine is matured for 6-8 months in 50 Hl Slavonian oak casks.

Roast and grilled meats and mature cheeses pair well…. as would pizzas and pasta!
