Dense ruby red with a purplish rim, it is immediately intense on the nose with marked aromas of ripe and fleshy red fruits, notably cherries followed by spicy notes of cinnamon and nutmeg; in the mouth it is full, powerful, smooth and very long, with a well defined acid streak which makes it fresh and pleasing.

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Salice Salentino Passamante is a great value option from Southern Italy. With six months in French barrique, this fresh red wine offers a dry bouquet with dusty tones of red earth and terra-cotta. There are zesty notes as well, with exotic overtones and North African spice. Pressed flower, dried fruit, prune, resin and smoke all make appearances. At the back are distant sulfur flavors with toasted nut and iron.
