"Passamante” Salice Salentino DOC 2018
(Apulia, Italy) $15
The appellation Salice Salentino in Apulia is a treasure trove of inexpensive southern Italian reds like this bold rustic wine from negroamaro grapes. It’s just begging for a dish of pasta with sausages from the grill. The name “Passamante” refers to a forest beside the vineyard where Italian lovers used to meet to do what Italian lovers do in secluded forests. From the words “pass” (to pass) and “amante” (lover).
