People are looking for everyday value when it comes to wines, and it really doesn’t get any better than the price to quality ratio of Cantele. A truly great example of a “family operated” winery, this family owns 50 hectare in Puglia and contracts another 150 to make wine at two different facilities. Situated in Puglia, on the Adriatic coast and far south of Italy’s more famous regions, the wines produced here offer a soft, supple texture, with full ripeness and fruit development. Primitivo has found tremendous success in this area and proves to be one of the “workhorse” wines of the region. The more prestigious Salice Salentino is perhaps better known, but for the sake of this newsletter we have chosen the raw simplicity of this delicious Primitivo. Loads of wild berries, dark cherry, fresh sage, and a sappy, mouthwatering freshness that keeps you wanting another taste.
Happy holidays, everyone! And happy holiday shopping!
