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.
100% Negroamaro from Cantele's top parcels, this is one of Cantele's most critically acclaimed wines, widely recognized as a classic.
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.
Rich red fruit flavor with zinging acidity and lively minerality make it ideal for roast meats, especially rosemary and garlic-studded lamb.
