Cantele Primitivo Puglia "Cantele" IGP 2022

Cantele Primitivo Puglia "Cantele" IGP 2021 is a captivating red wine that showcases the bold and robust nature of Primitivo grapes from the renowned Puglia region. With its rich flavors and expressive character, this wine offers a memorable drinking experience.

Grape Varietal & Region: This wine is crafted from 100% Primitivo grapes, a native variety to the Puglia region in southern Italy. Puglia is known for its warm climate and fertile soils, which contribute to the intensity and depth of the grapes. Grapes are harvested from vineyards in Sava (Taranto), Torricella (Taranto), San Pietro Vernotico (Brindisi)

Taste Profile:

The minerality of the nose creates a delicate combination of morello and sour cherry and prune. Cantele Primitivo is a true expression of the grape's character. It boasts ripe and juicy black fruit flavors, such as blackberry and plum, accompanied by hints of spice and a touch of earthiness. The wine's velvety tannins and well-balanced acidity provide structure and a lingering finish.

Winemaking Process: The harvest takes place in the first days of September. After crushing and destemming, the must remains in maceration with the skins for 6-7 days. The fermentation temperature is kept within 25-26 ° C. At the end of fermentation the wine stays in barriques for about 6 months.

Cantele is a family-owned winery with a passion for producing high-quality wines that showcase the unique terroir of Puglia. The winemaker's dedication to sustainable viticulture and traditional winemaking techniques results in wines that reflect the region's rich heritage and express the true essence of Primitivo.
