1994 Taurino Salice Salentino ($10)

Is this the best Salice Salentino ever? It's certainly a contender. After a mini-slump, Taurino is back with a delightful Southern Italian wine with a gorgeous balance between concentration and lively fruit. This medium-bodied red offers excellent flavors of grilled meat, smoke, black cherry and black currant. The length and complexity suggest a much more expensive product, and it has the elegance of a luxury-priced Tuscan wine. Buy it by the case; it will improve over the next five years.
