https://www.facebook.com/leone.decastrisSalice Salentino, a small village in Salento rich in vineyards and olive groves, is the landscape giving life to Leone de Castris’ wine tradition. 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

Sattes Rubin, granatfarbene Nuancen. Sauerkirschen und Zwetschgen offenbaren sich in der gediegen komponierten Nase, auch eine Spur Ingwer-Würze und eine leichte Röstaromatik. Viel süsser Fruchtdruck im Gaumen, rosinenartig, aber auch Kirschenkonfitüre, geschmeidig und von fülligem Körper, wärmendes Finale.
