Cantele Salice Salentino 2013

$ 12.25

100% Negroamaro from Puglia, Italy.

After being destemmed and crushed, the must macerates with skin contact for approximately 10 days. Fermentation is carried out at 25-26° C. Once malolactic fermentation is completed, the wine is aged in 1-year- and 2-year-old barriques for approximately 6 months.

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

Streaks of garnet giving way to intense ruby red. Candied fruits and spices that evolve into clean underbrush, tea, and amber notes. Enhanced by notes of red flowers, the aromas return on the palate transported by confident but not overbearing alcohol. The tannins and fresh acidity work in counterpoint to create a balanced, soft wine.

PAIRING: Roast veal and beef, game, lamb, and ripe aged cheeses.
