Cantele Rosato 2016: 90 POINTS ROBERT PARKER! “Wow, this is excellent value.”

So great to see this wine getting the attention it deserves.

“Wow, this is excellent value,” writes Monica Larner for Robert Parker.

Here are her tasting notes and score…

Cantele 2016 Rosato
90 points

This is a cheerful rosé from the deep south of Italy that opens to a bright pink-raspberry color. The 2016 Negroamaro Rosato is a distinct wine that boasts high individuality. The bouquet is almost savory in character with wild sage, dried fruit and cherry cola. This is a robust and medium-bodied rosato that stands a notch higher in terms of intensity next to many of its peers. Wow, this is excellent value.

This dynamic winery in the southern tip of Puglia shows some of the best values across the board in this roundup of Italian wines priced under $25. Congratulations to the winemaking team at Cantele for achieving such remarkable volume versus value margins. Case production on the three wines listed here are pretty big, ranging from 100,000 to 300,000 bottles of each wine.
