2012 Ipsum

The 2012 Ipsum is a 100% Verdejo wine sourced from vines that were grown organically in a high elevation vineyard in Spain's Rueda region. The wine was fermented with the grapes' natural yeast and aged in stainless steel with no malolactic fermentation for a pure interpretation of what this terroir can produce.

I really enjoyed this refreshing wine and I will be looking for more! It had fresh aromas of citrus blossoms and peach with flavors to match. It had a medium body, medium + crisp acidity with a clean, mineral-laced citrus finish. The perfect patio sipper for spring and summer, highly recommended and a great deal at $12!

Three Wines from Cantele

A friend who is associated with Cantele sent me a media sample of a few of their wines. They are produced in Puglia, often known as the heel of Italy's boot, from local grapes. 2011 Cantele Negroamaro Rosato - Aromas of cherry syrup with floral notes. Dry with a medium body, medium alcohol and medium acidity with a fresh cherry flavor. It worked well with our dinner of soft chicken tacos with tomatillo salsa. Whole Foods has it for $13.99. 2010 Cantele Primitivo - Aromas of black plum, dark cherry and licorice. Dry with a medium body, medium alcohol, medium tannins and medium acidity with flavors to match the aromas and a slightly spicy, long finish. Very smooth and drinkable. I served it with barbequed and smoked pulled pork sandwiches and it was delicious. Available at Spec's for about $15. 2009 Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva - Ripe blackberry and black cherry aromas. Dry with a medium body, medium alcohol, medium tannins and medium acidity with flavors to match the a
