an uncanny combination of vibrancy, fat and density. Finishes suave and long, with fine, sweet tannins and very good lift.

The 2010 Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva follows in the footsteps of the 2009, which, incidentally, won the coveted Gambera Rosso ‘Tre Biccheri’ award ( the ‘Oscars’ of Italian wines)! And it did for under $10 a bottle, incredible! Think ‘The Big Fat Greek Wedding’; low budget flick with an incredible return on the investment! Now we have that same talent at work in this latest rendition. Pure Negroamaro (red grape varietal indigenous to the Puglia region, or, ‘heel of the boot’), 100% worth of deep, dark and savory flavors without compromising on those earthy, rustic and meaty characteristics we know to be Salice Salentino (the town within Puglia for which the grape is best known). Originating from vines planted in 1962 and aged for a minimum of 24 months in French barriques. Ideal choice with Pizza, Pasta (red sauce, of course), steak and hamburgers among others. The ‘Go To’ wine if you will. If you don’t, you’ve insulted your palate (and probably your pocket as well)!

When contemporary style seamlessly blends with ancient tradition, and one man's dream is nourished with an extraordinary passion and modern vision, the wine of Cantine Menhir Salento Read More...
comes to life. Gaetano Marangelli, along with his brother, Vito Angelo, natives of Puglia, have seen this dream come to fruition in an unusually short time. In 2000, he began making wines through artisan processes that respect the time-honored traditions of local winemaking, while experimenting with unfamiliar varietals and exploring new ways to emphasize the uniqueness of Puglia's grapes, fertile soil and vineyards. The result is harmonious, balanced yet uniquely powerful wine. This Nº Zero Negroamaro is a perfect example-- we were smitten upon nosing and tasting it and knew our readers would probably react the same way.

The nose is filled with sweet dark plums and blackberries, both baking and peppery spices, leather, English tobacco and a hint of background lavender. The palate is very approachable with upfront ripe fruit flavors, sweet cherry and black cherry, a nice layer of warm brown spices, good grip from balanced acidity, a touch of herbs and pencil lead in the finish. This is great wine for September-- from warmer days to cooling nights this is ready for last-minute barbecues, tailgate parties or end-of-the-day fêtes. Just delicious.

Since 1936, the Palamà family has been making wine on their small estate in the warm climes of the deep South of Italia, in Puglia. This wine (A blend of 80% Negroamaro and 20% Malvasia Nera) Read More...
is expressive, rich, and robust on the palate, with an elegance that comes only from small productions and expert craftsmanship.

The nose is lucious and fruit-filled with notions of dark red fruits, black raspberry, boysenberry, pomengrante and red plum; spice and dark florals complement the fruit nosings. Upon tasting both the lush palate weight and excellent acidity manifest quickly-- flavors of strawberry tea, earthy, fresh-tilled soil, and dark spices persist nicely, riding a mixed fruit mélange wave toward a lengthy, tasty finish.
