Reviews and Ratings

Melanie Aubert rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Beautiful medium ruby colour with a hint of garnet. On the nose, you get a complex blend of red fruit (cherry, raspberry and plum) followed by refreshing eucalyptus and a hint of minerality. This medium-full bodied wine fills the palate with red fruit, vanilla, baking spice and minerality. Firm tannins and great acidity make this wine the perfect pairing for grilled meats, eggplant parmigiana or tomato-based pasta dishes.
From south Italy's Salento region in Puglia's wine growing region, this Primitivo, (aka Zinfandel) from Cantele (2015) is a more modern and lighter style Primitivo. The wine is quite tannic, but great with roasted game and grilled meats. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
