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.
Create your own visitor map! Gray Background tones, because despite many peoples' view that Everything in the world is simply Black or White, (all fundamentalists, many engineers, few scientists, lots of confused persons, many digital thinkers) there's all sorts of shades of gray, everywhere you look. Good wine doesn't have to be expensive. Conservatives do not have to be selfish and insane wing-nuts. Liberals do not have to have socialist-abortion-producing-crystal-worshiping-gay-marriages. Racists, xenophobes, fundamentalists, and willful ignorance suck. The Earth is Much Older than 6000 years. Don't be afraid of Science, embrace it. The web's a great tool. ..in the humble perspective of this INTJ alpha male.
