Cantele Primitivo 2011

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

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.
