Canto Cantele – Episode #280

In this episode of 1337 Wine TV, Mark reviews four wines from the Cantele Winery in Puglia (Apulia) Italy. These were kindly donated by my friend, Dr. Jeremy Parzen, in Austin. I review 4 wines here. First is the 2011 Chardonnay. Not a grape that comes to mind when thinking Italian wine, especially in Southern Italy. The next two are Negroamaros with one being the Salice Salentino Riserva (2010 and 2009 respectively – although the video says otherwise for the Riserva). The last wine is the 2010 Primitivo.

I had the reds a few days later and really enjoyed them. Even though I used a VacuVin to seal them, they felt like they had developed a bit more. I was also pairing it with some BBQ. The same BBQ I had paired with the Indian wines that I really didn’t like. A couple more days later, we had a lemon pasta dish and had the Chardonnay. Went very well with it.
