Negroamaro Rosato “big hit” at sexy LA pop-up

We were thrilled to read this review and tasting notes by one of the top wine professionals working in Los Angeles today, Michael Nemcik, who authors the wine and food blog MAN about Town.

He poured the wine at a recent pop-up dinner there. Here’s what he had to say about it:

Next we got to the Cantele Negroamaro Rosato, a wine really dear to my heart from my days first tasting Southern Italian varietals at Sotto. I walked around the large tables sharing this wine (from the Salento IGT in Puglia) with several guests. This wine has a beautiful color, bright strawberry, and watermelon flavor backed by pronounced acidity which made it a big hit.

This wine is done in the salasso method, in which the juice is bled off the musts after limited contact with the grape skins. I had several people come over asking to take a picture of the bottle.

Thank you, Michael! You rock!
