90 points from Wine Spectator: "A harmonious red, medium- to full-bodied, with silky tannins and well-knit flavors of crushed black cherry, espresso crema, violet and spice. A streak of rich, loamy earth is the savory underpinning that emerges on the chewy finish. Negroamaro and Malvasia Nera. Drink now through 2026. 54,166 cases made, 1,000 cases imported." (7/31/21)

90 points from Vinous: "An alluring mix of clove, allspice, ginger and dusty rose rises up from the 2017 Salice Salentino Riserva. It’s silky in texture yet lifted in feel, presenting a pure display of red and blue fruits giving way to exotic spices and sweet tannins that saturate toward the close. Notes of plum and licorice linger through the long, lightly structured finale. The Salice Salentino Riserva is a blend of 95% Negroamaro and 5% Malvasia Nera di Lecce." (May, 2021)
