- Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2011 Product #29454 (In Stock)
Another fine vintage for this deep South Italian red that is always robust, but never cooked or heavy. 100% Negromaro done all in tank for freshness.
"Firm and savory, this opens with aromas of ripe berry, clove and graphite. On the palate, notes of clove and black pepper add depth to ripe Morello cherry and crushed raspberry flavors. Supple tannins offer support."Wine Enthusiast 89 points
- Cantine Farro Le Cigliate Campi Flegrei Doc 2012 Product #29259 (In Stock)
Winemaker Michele Farro makes this blockbuster Falanghina from the “Cigliate” – older, ungrafted, vines that grow right on the edge of the volcanic craters of the Phlegraean Fields. He harvests this concentrated fruit up to two weeks later than his other whites, giving the wine extra body, richness, and power. The aromas and flavors here are complex and deep, with strong herbal/tobacco notes under the dusky stone fruit and exotic spice components. The wine’s texture is fantastic, creamy and a bit reminiscent of white Chateauneuf du Pape, with hints of peach, coconut and mountain laurel emerging with air.
For all its richness and complexity, this finishes clean and bright, making it a fantastic choice for a richer summer sipper. But, it will be even better with a mixed grill of calamari and shellfish, halibut with olives and capers, or soft, ripe, cheeses.
