Leone de Castris Salice Salentino Riserva 2005

Member Review by dynowine:

Tight nose. Sour. Spicy. Somewhat tannic. Chewy deep black fruit. Balanced. Good integration. Nuts and wood in the finish. Not as hot and big as other Negroamaro blends I've tasted - cleaner, more elegant. Decent QPR, too.

He began to plant new vines, olive trees and wheat along 5 thousand hectares‘ properties, not only in Salice, but also in Guagnano, Veglie, Villa Baldassarri, Novoli and San Pancrazio. Read less
