Food Pairings for Càntele Primitivo Salento
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!!
External Reviews for Càntele Primitivo Salento
Better known for it's rustic reds, this winery's 2000 Primitivo is a medium-bodied, straightforward, stainless steel-aged effort displaying sweet cherry fruit, balsam wood, soil, pepper, and herb characteristics. Meant for uncritical quaffing, it will provide pleasure over the next 2-3 years.
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.
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.
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.
The 2006 Primitivo is a dense, dark beauty loaded with dark fruit, tar and flowers. This generous, inviting red is best enjoyed over the next year or two. It is a terrific value.
Primitivo grapes ripen very early in the season giving the wine a deep, intense red color, full body and unique bouquet with scents of spices.
Deep inky-ruby. Sweet red cherry, plum jam and herbal aromas on the fresh nose. Ripe black cherry, blackberry jam and tobacco flavors display moderate intensity and length.
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.<br/>
