Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2013
RP90: "The Cantele 2013 Salice Salentino Riserva shows a greater level of depth and finesse compared to many of its peers. The wine is packed tight with blackberry fruit, with Maraschino cherry, plum and prune in abundance. The wine is chewy and rich for sure, but it also provides an authentic and generous portrait of a red wine from Puglia. A spicy beef or lamb dish would make the perfect pairing partner."
Cantele is one of the most reliable producers of value wine from Puglia. Dark & rich with plenty of dark fruit, prune and blackcurrant. Background notes of dark spice, leather and tobacco add layers of richness, complexity and power. The ripeness continues to the palate and is reinforced by soft tannins and sweet berry end notes.
