Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2014

SKU 113533


COLOR: Streaks of garnet giving way to intense ruby red. NOSE: Candied fruits and spices that evolve into clean underbrush, tea, and amber notes. PALATE: Enhanced by notes of red flowers, the aromas return on the palate transported by confident but not overbearing alcohol. The tannins and fresh acidity work in counterpoint to create a balanced, soft wine. PAIRING: Roast veal and beef, game, lamb, and ripe aged cheeses.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Salice Salentino Riserva is a heavy and concentrated wine with prune, raisin and blackberry jelly. The wine is hearty and dense with sweet flavors on the finish that are interwoven tightly with equally savory characteristics. Despite those big bones, this wine from Cantele ultimately offers good balance and a very clean and correct drinking style. It a great value, too.
