Garnet highlights enliven this intense ruby red wine. Caramelized red fruits, spices, hints of box wood, tea and amber unfold in the mouth and are balanced by the tannins and acidy to create a smooth and luscious wine. Serve with pasta and meat sauce, red meats including lamb. Ideal partner for medium to well-seasoned cheese.

Wine Advocate

Cantele's 2003 Salice Salentino Riserva is a plump, juicy, super-ripe red that offers terrific value for the money. A blend of 85% Negroamaro and 15% Malvasia, it spent 6 months in used oak. Ideally it is best consumed over the next year or so. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2009.

Score: 87. —Antonio Galloni, August 2008.
