|Region||Italy, Puglia, Primitivo del Salento|
Cantele became a Salento Primitivo pioneer when it released this wine more than a decade ago. Vinified in stainless steel and aged in oak, this lithe expression of Puglia's most famous grape offers elegant red fruit flavors without ever overwhelming the palate. A favorite pairing for a juicy burger.
The spearmint on the nose of this Primitivo jumps out of the glass, giving way to dark plums. A medicinal-cola combination reminiscent of Dr Pepper comes out on the palate, followed by a umami finish of mushrooms and soy sauce with easygoing tannins. - DANIELLE CALLEGARI
This toasty red is medium-bodied and fresh, with a soft tang of orange peel acidity. Shows vanilla- and spice-laced notes of sappy black currant and black cherry fruit, cola and grilled herbs. Drink now. 25,000 cases made, 3,000 cases imported.
