Duca del Salento
This is a super example of a wine style that has become very popular in recent years. Coming from the south of Puglia, where many exports had been labelled 'rustic', Salice Salentino, and especialy the red Riservas, have given a great source of high quality wines that sit in a category of European classic with much more established peers. The wines are typically made from indigenous grapes and these respond well to barrel-aging and easily give great Resrerva-like flavours of dried fruit, candied peel and integrated spice. The best versions can even get to be concentrated and full-bodied. This was voted the best wine in Ireland in 2015 at the National Off Licences Awards.
