Salento, Puglia

Masso Antico

Appassito Fiano

They’ve solved Fiano! Who knew? Appassimento method applied to this grape is absolutely delicious. It starts with a honeydew kick in the teeth before reminding you this is still a bad ass acidic Italian beast. What a solid contribution to the wine world! — 11 days ago

Salento Chardonnay 2018

Delectable Wine
9.0

Cantele’s 2018 Chardonnay offers up pleasant, fruity aromas of banana, nectarine, pineapple and herbs. On the palate, it is fresh and juicy, with a bright mouthfeel that lingers nicely. This lovely unoaked Chardonnay hints at tropical fruit without being over the top. $16.00 (Ian D'Agata, Vinous, March 2020) — 14 days ago
