Cantele Primitivo Salento 2011
Three and a half glasses
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!!
External Reviews for Cantele Primitivo Salento
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.
Helles Strohgelb, anhaltendes, fruchtbetontes Bouquet. Frisch und rassig im Antrunk, ausgewogen und trocken im Geschmack.
Excellent Southern Italian Primitivo. The sweet nose bursts with freshness, plums, berries and dry earth. Itrsquo;s neither heavy nor lean, with ripe plum, watermelon and chocolate flavors. Undoubtedly superb with pasta or pizza.
Better known for itrsquo;s rustic reds, this wineryrsquo;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 2ndash;3 years.
The 2005 Primitivo is an engaging wine with plenty of sweet, ripe fruit perfect for drinking over the next year or two. It spent 6 months in used oak barrels. It, too, is an outstanding value. Anticipated maturity: 2008ndash;2010.
Are we outside looking in, or inside looking out? the label is as mysterious as its content. DNA testing confirmed that the Primitivo grape in Italy is the same grape as the Zinfandel of California. How? No one knows. This wine is from the Salento peninsula of Apulia (the heel of Italyrsquo;s boot) and has the same relationship to Californiarsquo;s Zinfandel as Francersquo;s Syrah has to Australiarsquo;s Shiraz. It has brilliant ruby color, flavors of ;blackberry and cranberry dominated by clove, nutmeg, mace, and black pepper. As you taste the wine, the flavors and aromas dance around the palate and weave in and out of perception. Enjoy the wine, ponder the mystery, salute the differences.
