Cantele Salice Salentino Negroamaro Riserva – 2006 – 8.9 – James Melendez

I am a big fan of Negroamaro–unique different from New World reds; deep and satisfying, relatively low alcohol levels, high acid and blissfully pact with delightful notes ranging from mid-summer fruit, to deeply basted dark red fruit, spice, wood, mushroom.  And on top of a very nice wine are some great values.

This wine imparts notes of dark cherry, moist cedar, black pepper, and ground nutmeg.

About James Melendez

I love wine and have had the privilege of working in the wine trade as a senior national wine marketing manager for a wine, food and home goods retailer in 30+ US States. I executed into making wine experiential and made 'wines of the world' programme work in a highly regulated framework for a successful business proposition. My "wine" site also incorporates those categories intimately involved with wine such as food, travel and lifestyle. This site incorporates my many dimensions of interest. I love to review and also talk about many aspects of wine. I have been privileged to visit many wine countries and find them enthralling no matter how many times I visit. I love all aspects of wine: viticulture, history, winemaking, brand development, wine regions and many more aspects. This is a living tradition that needs documentation, education, reporting and reviewing. Do I have favourite varieties and styles? I love so many varieties and often it is situational and yet there are time honoured wines that I anticipate and I am passionate about. I like all colours of wine and all styles. I have had a mad passionate affair with sparkling wines and they are always top of mind. Wine nourishes our soul and is the key to connecting with other people at our dinner table.

  1. Hi James! Thank you so much for your kind review. I’m really happy you like our Salice Salentino. Just a doubt: you talked about synthetic cork but we use for that wine only real cork. Are you sure about that?

  2. Thanks James! I hope you will come to visit us sooner or later.
