Cantele Primitivo del Salento 2015
|Appellation||Primitivo del Salento|
Wine AdvocateFrom the Salento, with red soils and scorching sunshine in the southern tip of Puglia, the 2015 Primitivo is a rich and luscious wine with sweet cherries and blackberries that run through the wine's fleshy and almost sweet mouthfeel. Prune, raisin and cooked cherry all rise to the top. This is Puglia Primitivo in all its glory and power. Some 250,000 bottles were made.
Wine Spectator Floral and spice accents play off of the raspberry and plum fruit in this easy-drinking, medium-bodied red, while light tannins and grilled herb notes show on the finish. Drink now through 2019. 20,833 cases made.
