Leone de Castris Primitivo di Manduria 2011

Member Review by Italian Wine Blog:

Ver dark purple verging on black in the glass. The nose was weird, artificial sweet, no fruit to speak of, a hint of something vegetal. Silky and enjoyable mouthfeel accompanied by a burning finish. This particular bottle found its way down the sink in record time. Only the mouthfeel and tasty midpalate deserve any note. Awful QPR, stay away.

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
