Cantele Primitivo 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

With a touch of tree bark lending this a savory edge, this opens on the nose showing off candied black fruit wrapped in spicy new oak. Smooth and almost supple in the mouth, this has lovely herbal shadings lending detail to the core of black cherry fruit on the palate and some well integrated and yet attractive wood spice notes add further nuance on the backend, though wood tannins also make themselves know here as well. Clean, a bit drying and slightly woody on the modest finish, this is just a bit drying and a touch simple on the palate, though it does speak of Primitivo. 84pts

We have just sampled this wine for the first time recently and very much liked it. It will become part of our regular primitivo selection.

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.

Dunkel, fast violettrot in der Farbe. Im Bouquet ausgeprägt würzige (Wachholder) und maulbeerige Noten. Kraftvoller, langer Ausklang.

87 Points - Wine Advocate The 2007 Primitivo opens with a blast of dark fruit, toasted oak and spices that follows through to the finish with notable length and balance. This is a delicious wine, es

A deep, intense red color, full bodied with a unique mineral bouquet and undertones of cherries and plums.

A chunky, plummy red from Apulia in Southern Italy. Great for everyday drinking.
