"This is the kind of wine that makes me love my job every day. You never know when someone is going to bring you something eye opening like this, and I immediately fell in love. The aromatics are so deep and powerful, one sniff was all it took to say WOW. Aromas of crushed rock and herbs combined beautifully with wild strawberry, blueberry and acacia flower aromas. The palate is bold, rich and nicely textured, with great balance. Loaded with complexity and not just fruit character, but great earth tones as well. Slightly tannic on the finish, but air really helps those melt in to the wine. If you were paying $80 to $100 on a wine list, it's still an incredible steal, that's how much I think of this wine."

Salice Salentino is a commune in southern Apulia that is a DOC as well. Always comprised of a high percentage of Negroamaro (minimum 85%), it is sometimes blended with small amounts of Malvasia Nera, as this wine is here.
"Tenute Materdomini is a young winery located in the Salentino area, close to the town of Lecce. All the vineyards are in the best spot of the region, very close to the seaside at an altitude between 200-300 meters, above the sea level. Perfect characteristics to grow Negroamaro and Malvasia Nera. This estate focuses on producing wines traditionally made with the help of modern technologies." - Importer
"Tenute Mater Domini was founded in 2003 through the realization of a business venture by Pierandrea Semeraro, aimed at using the food resources already present in the territory of Salento, particularly those of wine and oil."
"The concept of quality for the company is primarily focused upon modernizing methods of agricultural production, paying particular attention to agricultural innovation, as well as respecting the traditions of the Salento area. The production of our products follows this philosophy “creating innovation, whilst being aware of our roots”."
"Quality is not a subjective parameter, but is rather a philosophy aimed at achieving perfection. It is linked to the goal of not leaving anything to chance, and also to respecting the environment in producing a unique product ."
"The Salento peninsula is characterized by the running of two seas, representing an excellent field of application and experimentation of the concept of terroir."
"Terroir derives from many factors, ranging from the soil and climate, the particular grape varieties, the special features of the land, and above all to the wine tradition in this area." - Winery
