Caleo Salice Salentino

I've liked Puglia wines for a long time.  Caleo's Salice Salentino, 2008, Denominazione di Origine Controllata is a good example of an inexpensive southern Italian red wine that is delicious and goes well with meat dishes.  I enjoyed it yesterday with some salt rubbed chuck tender steaks, mushrooms, onions & carrots.  It was quite tasty. 

Caleo does a good job in making inexpensive table wines and their Salice Salentino fits into that genre.  I picked mine up at Total wine for all of $7.  It won't be my last bottle from Caleo.
