Tasty cherries and red fruits here, delicate and smooth, not with particularly long tannins but drinking well now.
Dark plums and juniper berries on the nose, giving way to an explosive front to mid palate full of rich dark fruit flavours, spices and dried herbs, perhaps oregano. Finishes shorter in the mouth but goes on for some time and has a freshness such that it will keep for a while yet (and hopefully will open up even more). As with a lot of straight Cabernet, even better with food.
Cantele - Negroamaro Salento IGT
Not a variety I've seen before, but this example has typical Italian rustic characters and dark fruit flavours but not overpowering. Some nice tannins towards the end of a strong, dry acid finish. Great with any pasta.
