Leone de Castris Negrino Aleatico Dolce IGT IGT 2005

Member Review by Drodriguez:

I was given a bottle of this wine during my trip to Italy over the 2010 Christmas holiday. This wine is great not bitter nor sweet, perfect for a dinner that consist of pasta with red sauce or a steak dinner. I went on-line to try and locate a liquor store in my area that carries this wine-negative! I will continue my search or have it sent to me if necessary. It was that good!!!

It is exactly here, on the very spot where today’s cellar stands, that in 1665 Duke Oronzo, Earl of Lemos, gave birth to the company. He got enchanted by this landscape and decided to sell all his properties in Spain in order to draw the best from the Salentine rich terroir. 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
