This wine is ruby-red in color with expressive notes of ripe plum mingled with blackberry jam and sweet spice. On the palate, Maiana is full-bodied and robust. A wonderful partner to roast game, beef, or hearty casseroles.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Salice Salentino Maiana is the estate's entry-level red wine offered at a rock bottom price. This Salice Salentino is made with 90% Negroamaro and 10% Malvasia Nera di Lecce and sees a brief six-month period in large oak casks. Some 300,000 bottles are produced. The wine is simple and streamlined with a clean succession of primary fruit aromas. Cherry and raspberry give the wine its easy-drinking style. There isn't much depth or complexity, but the wine's genuine freshness is its biggest asset.
