About Cantele:

This winery was founded in 1979 by Giovanni Cantele and his two sons Augusto and Domenico, and is the result of ten years experience in the wine business in the Salentino area. Cantele's latest investments have served to increase their presence in the DOC zone of Salice Salentino in the commune of Guagnano, where they grow the local Negroamaro, Malvasia Nera and Primitivo varieties.
