The Cantele estate is a third-generation family-owned and run winery founded by the current generation's grandparents, immigrants from the north who settled in Puglia after WWII. Known for its pioneering work with Chardonnay and its passion for native grapes.
About the Vineyard
The narrow Salento peninsula is renowned for high-quality wine thanks to abundant ventilation, temperate weather, extreme diurnal shifts in summer, and limestone-rich soils. Over the last two decades, Cantele has implemented a cutting-edge "minimal intervention" system in its vineyards, thus ensuring freshness and varietal expression.
Cantele became a Salento Primitivo pioneer when it released this wine more than a decade ago. Vinified in stainless steel and aged in oak, this lithe expression of Puglia's most famous grape offers elegant red fruit flavors without ever overwhelming the palate.
A favorite pairing for a juicy burger.
