Above: San Diego wine writer and restaurateur Jon Erickson’s wine list at Jaynes Gastropub is widely considered one of the best in town.

“I highly recommend the 2009 Cantele ‘Salice Salentino Riserva,’” writes San Diego Union-Tribune wine writer and restaurant owner Jon Erickson, whose Jaynes Gastropub is a favorite among foodies and restaurant industry insiders. “It is deep-hued, floral and earthy with firm acidity that goes well with many dishes, especially pizza, pasta and spicy dishes.”

Erickson included the Salice Salentino in his wine column, published this week, in an article devoted to “Navigating a Wine List Like a Pro.”

“This Tre Bicchieri 3-Glass Award winner,” he adds, “is available by the glass or bottle at my favorite San Diego Neapolitan pizzeria, Caffè Calabria,” just up the street from his restaurant, where Cantele wines are also poured.
