Cantele - Primitivo del Salento 2017
Fresh and light in style, Cantele’s Primitivo is one of Cantel's most versatile wines at the dinner table: From pizza to pastas topped with meat sauce, baked pastas, and even some lighter entrées, the juicy fruit of this wine pairs wonderfully with a wide variety of foods - Italian and international.
But its lithe character in the glass also makes for a great pairing for seafood dishes. In fact, it’s one of Lecce’s favorites to pair with the excellent fish and seafood they serve there.
Colour: 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.
