Cantele Primitivo 2015

$ 12.50

VINIFICATION: After being destemmed and crushed, the must macerates with skin contact for 6-7 days. Fermentation is carried out at 25-26° C.

AGING: The wine is then aged in barriques for approximately 6 months.

AGING POTENTIAL: This wine is ready to drink but will continue to evolve for 3-4 years.

COLOR: Ruby red with delicate garnet undertones.

NOSE: The minerality of the nose creates a delicate combination of morello and sour cherry and prune. Floral and spicy notes follow in a superbly persistent finish.

PALATE: Gentle tannins, impressive acidity combine with the classic delicacy and alcoholic content of Primitivo in the flavors of this once forceful but now elegant and noble wine.

PAIRING: Pasta with rich meat sauces, excellent with red meat and in particular lamb. An ideal pairing for moderately aged as well as intense ripe cheeses.
