Salice Salentino Doc Riserva 2014 Cantele
Cardullo's Gourmet Shoppe
Streaks of garnet giving way to an intense ruby red. Aromas of candied fruits and spices that evolve into clean underbrush, tea, and amber notes. Enhanced by notes of red flowers, the aromas return on the palate transported by confident but not overbearing alcohol. The tannins and fresh acidity work in counterpoint to create a balanced, soft wine.
Cantele: This winery was founded in 1979 by Giovanni Cantele and his two sons Augusto and Domenico, and is the result of ten years experience in the wine business in the Salentino area. Cantele's latest investments have served to increase their presence in the DOC zone of Salice Salentino in the commune of Guagnano, where they grow the local Negroamaro, Malvasia Nera and Primitivo varieties.
