Here’s what Wine Spectator Italian editor Alison Napjus has to say about the Cantele Salice Salentino, a wine she has included in her “best value” round ups.
Cantele Salice Salentino
Juicy flavors of ripe wild strawberry and red licorice mark the start to this light-to medium-bodied red, with supple tannins lending some structure and weight. Savory accents of garrigue, loamy earth and star anise echo on the finish.
The wine has also been included by Wine Spectator senior editor Tim Fish in his Memorial Day recommendations for summer grilling.
