    Winemaker's Notes:

    The violet reflections of this deep red wine are complemented by the unique, intense bouquet and spicy aroma. The wine is full bodied and conveys a velvety warmth.

    Perfectly paired with game, roasted or braised meat, hard mature cheeses.

    "Smoky oak meets juicy cherry in this meaty Primitivo. Match teh chewy tannins with burgers fresh off the grill." 88 Points

    Robert Connors (9/29/2010)
    This is a surprise under-rated wine from Puglia that will pair nicely with any rich red sauce or intensely-flavored meat (Roast boar would be great). Intense flavors, not a wimpy wine at all, and plenty of spice and a very good balance. We tasted and reviewed this wine on-air on 'Taste and Chat' and it was hard to surpress my delight. I was tempted to become a bit effusive about it, and it is certainly deserving of praise. After a re-tasting, I awarded this wine 92 points, certainly a 'best buy' at the price. I will make it a point to visit the Cantele winery on a future trip to southern Italy.
