Cantele - Salice Salentino Rosso Riserva 2016Balanced & Soft
Cantele’s barrique-aged Teresa Manara Negroamaro is widely considered to be a benchmark for the category and the winery’s Salice Salentino, also made using a selection of top fruit, is once its most critically acclaimed wines in the U.S. today. Cantele also uses Negroamaro to make youthful, fresh wine and a rosé, both of which are also favorites among our American friends.
Colour: Streaks of garnet giving way to intense ruby red.
Nose: Candied fruits and spices that evolve into clean underbrush, tea, and amber notes.
Palate: 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.
