Cantele – Verdeca Puglia

R185.00

Until recently, Puglia was known only for its famous red varieties, their earth- and fruit-driven flavors, and their remarkable balance and food-friendliness.
But as the interest in indigenous grapes has swept the region (and the world), Cantele decided it wanted to create a Verdeca that would be a benchmark for the variety. The resulting wine is yellow-straw in color with hints of green, fresh and bright in the glass with mouthwatering acidity and citrus and stone fruit flavors. A wonderful note of minerality is the perfect counterpoint to the wine’s vibrant fruit, making it all the more versatile and compelling at the table.
