Food Pairings for Càntele Primitivo Salento IGT
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 IGT
Smoky oak meets juicy cherry in this meaty primitivo. Match the chewy tannins with burgers fresh off the grill.
An amazing bargain at $11, this is dense, rich, powerful stuff, its tannins stretching through the spicy, mineral-laden red fruit like runner's muscles, long and strong. Drink it now with bacon-wrapped pork loin, but make sure to stash a few bottles in the cellar, too: this should hold well for at least another five years.
Ripe and plummy, with dark, sculpted fruit and tons of it, this Primitivo is frisky as a Barbera, but fuller. Dynamite with hot sausage crumpled over pasta.
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.
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.
