Castello Monaci Liante 2009
You must let this red from Salice Salentino, inApulia in the extreme south of Italy, breathe for at least two hours so that it can shed itself of an otherwise unpleasant aftertaste. Once it's done that, it'll reward you with a pleasing mix of very ripe cherry and plum and a vaguely chocolaty finish. At the closeout price of $8.99, a very attractive buy.
