Tasting Notes

Grown almost exclusively in Puglia, the Negroamaro grape reaches its apogee in the Salice Salentino appellation. This wine is a classic example of rich, dark berries leading into an earthy, herbal aroma. The palate is dense and tightly packed with firm tannins and crunchy acidity. The blackberry and plum provide a warm, spicy quality which would be a great match for grilled meats, rich pasta dishes and game.

PRODUCER

Cantele , Puglia, Italy

For three generations, the Cantele family has been making wines in the Salento peninsula of Puglia.

Having originally come from northern Italy, Giovanni Battista and his wife Teresa Manara settled in Salento having fallen instantly in love with the region during a visit in the 1950s. Today, the whole family is involved and their energy and enthusiasm for what they do is contagious.

The primary focus of their 50 hectares is on local and historical varieties such as Primitivo, Negroamaro, Fiano and Bombino, though they have also gone on to enjoy great success with international varieties. Long, sunny days and cooling sea breezes sweeping in from the Adriatic and Ionian seas have led to the production of wines which are rich, ripe and beautifully balanced.

Not satisfied with producing excellent wines, they have invested time and money into scientific research to advance quality in the entire region; from isolating the indigenous Negroamaro yeast strains to studying the sensorial impact of Brettanomyces, the Cantele family continue to work tirelessly in the advancement of quality. This avid attention to detail is not just found in the cellar, but also in the vineyards where they have stopped using pesticides and herbicides and are...

REGION

Puglia, Italy

Puglia is “the heel” of the boot of peninsular Italy. It is bordered by both the Adriatic and Ionian Seas, giving it one of the longest coastlines of any region in Italy. The flagship red grape of Puglia is Primitivo, a distant cousin of California’s Zinfandel grape. The wines made with Primitivo are luscious, heavy and definitely “food wines”. Another successful and important red wine from Puglia is Salice Salentino, a powerful red wine made primarily with Negroamaro. We are very proud to work with Cantele and Masseria Li Veli, both family-run estates in the heart of Puglia, whose elegant wines offer exceptional value for money.
