Doctor Wine, one of Italy’s leading tasting note portals, awarded 91 points to the 2014 Cantele Salice Salentino this month.
Here’s the tasting note (translation by Cantele):
Cantele 2014 Salice Salentino
Made from 100 percent Negroamaro grapes, this wine ages for six months in small casks and then finishes its aging stainless-steel tanks. Garnet red in color, it offers a wide spectrum of aromas on the nose, with hints of balsamic, currants, sour cherry, and rhubarb. The wine is rich and smooth in the mouth, with evolved, velvety tannin.
