Cantele Primitivo del Salento 2015


SKU 17831


Color: Ruby red with delicate garnet undertones. Nose: The minerality of the nose creates a delicate combination of morello and sour cherry and prune. Floral and spicy notes follow in a superbly persistent finish. Palate: Gentle tannins, impressive acidity combine with the classic delicacy and alcoholic content of Primitivo in the flavors of this once forceful but now elegant and noble wine. Pairing: Pasta with rich meat sauces, excellent with red meat and in particular lamb. An ideal pairing for moderately aged as well as intense ripe cheeses.

Wine AdvocateFrom the Salento, with red soils and scorching sunshine in the southern tip of Puglia, the 2015 Primitivo is a rich and luscious wine with sweet cherries and blackberries that run through the wine's fleshy and almost sweet mouthfeel. Prune, raisin and cooked cherry all rise to the top. This is Puglia Primitivo in all its glory and power. Some 250,000 bottles were made.
