2014 Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva

SKU #1337081 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2014 Salice Salentino Riserva is a heavy and concentrated wine with prune, raisin and blackberry jelly. The wine is hearty and dense with sweet flavors on the finish that are interwoven tightly with equally savory characteristics. Despite those big bones, this wine from Cantele ultimately offers good balance and a very clean and correct drinking style. It a great value, too. 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. (ML)  (8/2017)

This has been a consistent hit with our customers and Cantele continues to produce high quality wine at very modest price points. Their latest Salice offers up their trademark rich baked red and black fruit with sweet tannins and bright acidity that together make this a wonderful table red. Cantele sets the bar high which is why we sell so much of this wine every vintage.

Warm, baked fruit paired with soft and supple tannins make this an easy week night drinker. The solid structure will go along with a lot of different meal pairings, so grab some pizza and enjoy!

Puglia is going through a rebirth when it comes to wine, and all over Southern Italy innovative producers are using indigenous varieties to coax the local terroir flavors out of their soil. These are wines with character, balance, weight and a unique expression of their varietals rarely seen here in the USA. This Salice Salentino is one of those wines, 100% Negroamaro, dark fruit, some spice and lots of acidity, prefect for pizza & pasta.

From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England.
