Red Wine

2014 Cantele Salice Salentino Doc Riserva

Price: $14

This little wine was featured in the April issue of Wine & Food magazine. It was described as having juicy red fruit flavors and black tea notes. However, we found that it tastes like a bitter flower. Even after aeration and letting it sit out for a while, it was overwhelmingly bitter. The nose is nice and aromatic. We had the opportunity to also try the 2013 version of the same wine and it was much better and more mellow. If you can find the 2013 version, we recommend you enjoy that wine with your dinner.

This was our first foray into Negoramaro grapes. Hopefully, further experiences with these grapes will work out better.
