Sipping Fine Wine Delectable Pro

Founded in 1979 by Giovanni Cantele and his two sons Augusto and Domenico. Ruby with big fruit aromas with sweet jammy notes. On the palate concentrated berry fruit flavors, a bit jammy and sweet, lively acidity, surprisingly great balance. Firm tannins yielding a medium finish ending with noticeable alcohol. Good value for a wine with a bit of complexity.

Delicious negroamaro! Aromas of stone fruit jam with a touch of earthiness. Cassis, dried plum, and berries with a slight mineral finish. Great balanced vino!

Nose metallic and sharp, with underlying sweetness. Same on palate; spicy, some lemon, a little thin. Interesting, if not great. Pandemic bottle #29.

Cant remember is this was cheap or expensive. Tastes like it's worth it regardless.

Great stuff. Lots of leather... the fruit, alcohol, tannins, all very balanced.

Italian. Red. Puglian. Really enjoyed this, notes of raspberry and cranberry. Lighter in feel than the Nero d’avola I like from Sicily. Jammy but not too sweet. Recommend. Had with mushroom topped pizza. Under $15.

A little too acidic which improves with Oxygen. Probably could benefit from aging.

Dark fruit, medium body, tannin hits the palate evenly. Good for drinking by the fire
