Dried cranberry flavor and woody earthiness but with sharper, more focused acidity & lower alcohol.
Overall, a solid dry rose. The fruit flavor is not overpowering. It was great with salmon.
Deep, rich purple color, a slight musty scent, pleasing to the palate w/black cherry & licorice. A good find at a bargin price
Great wine for the price! Dry, but a hint of sweet. Great for parties!
slightly warm and spicy
I like dry reds, but not so dry that it sucks the moisture out of my face (hello chianti), and the Cantele Primitivo is just the right balance for my tastebuds! Please, if anyone has a chianti to recommend, I would be willing to give it a go. $8.99 at Trader Joe's!!
Three and a half glasses

Helles Strohgelb, anhaltendes, fruchtbetontes Bouquet. Frisch und rassig im Antrunk, ausgewogen und trocken im Geschmack.
Kräftiges Rosa durch die farbintensive Negroamarotraube. Köstlich erfrischendes Bouquet mit dem Duft frisch gepflückter Waldbeeren. Am Gaumen elegante Säure, finessenreiche Fruchttextur.
Kräftiges Strohgelb. Feine Aromatik nach Pfirsich und Aprikose mit einer Spur Vanille. Reichhaltig und kraftvoll am Gaumen, langes Finale.
Bright red-ruby color. Spiced plum, currant and pepper on the vinous nose. Juicy and peppery in the mouth; offers the spice and cut of a particularly food-friendly Zinfandel, without any excess alcohol. A fairly light and smooth wine with juicy red berry and spice flavors and a firmly tannic finish.
Location is everything! Prime growing conditions allow this deeply refreshing red to boast rich and spicy fruits with a hint of sweetness. Try with backyard B-B-Q or red pasta dishes.
Another southern Italian gem. High-density planting of vines 35 to 40 years old and aging in French oak barrels has yielded a deep-colored wine with gobs of fruit. A real bargain.
100% Negroamaro from Puglia, this rose has a beautiful light cherry red color. Intense and persistent fruity aromas with hints of strawberry and cherry candy. Dry and fresh on the palate, clean and pleasant. Perfect for seafood and fish soup.
