Salice Salentino Mocavero, Malvasia Nera, Negramaro, Montepulciano, Pure Puglia, excellent every day hearty red for Pasta.......Every time i have this wine, i think to myself, i must drink this more often, it is so good. I suppose nowadays when i am taking a bottle home, i am always looking for something totally different and unusual and i forget how fantastic these little Italian wines are on an dull Wednesday evening. With some thrown together Pasta with loads of garlic, red peppers, a little basil and some bits of left over Tuscan sausage (that the kids didn't eat), this Salice is like nectar and turns a boring Wednesday evening into another pleasurable exploration of the senses! Just in case i haven't mentioned, this is made by my good mate Francesco Mocavero and his other wines are pretty splendid too, great for a mixed case of nice Italian reds. See below in the featured products!


Francesco Mocavero, what a guy. When i first met him, he barely spoke, when asked about his wine, he said, 'e molto buono', that was it! But after a while his personality shone through as sure as the sun rises over his vines into a cloudless sky almost every day on his small wine farm in Lecce. A mild mannered, gentleman with impeccable style, Francesco understands how to get the best out of the grapes in Puglia, 'pick early' he says, the only way to ensure there is enough acidity to keep the wine fresh. He picks the Primitivo sometimes as early as the second week in August and by golly, it is fresh but at the same time, soft, full of fruit and with the characteristic dark cherry sweetness. Francesco is not a natural wine maker. He works his vineyard in as healthy a way as he can whilst ensuring a decent crop of grapes each year. All his wines offer great value for money and tend to suit most palates being some of the most approachable wines we sell. If you like red wine, try Mocavero, if you want a red for a gift then Mocavero is always a safe bet. Francesco is just like that, he is a man who likes to please. It is the Puglian way.
