Leone de Castris Primitivo Primitivo di Manduria Villa Santera 2004

Member Review by Gourmet Mommy:

Dry, mellow. Light pepper flavor. Nice for a classic Italian dinner. I had it with antipasti: prosciutto, sweet sopressatta, tangy cow's milk cheeses, crostini. Perfect match.

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 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
