The Leone de Castris family has been making wines in Salice Salentino from over three centuries, a small village in the region of Puglia. 

Intense deep red color with purple hues. The nose is fruity, revealing aromas  of plum, black fruit, and blackberry jam, with a pleasantly spicy sensation of vanilla, tea, and amber. On the palate it is rich and full-bodied, with smooth, integrated tannin's

Suggested food pairing:

Ideal with grilled meats, baked pasta dishes, pasta with hearty sauce, and  strong cheeses.

Wine EnthusiastLight aromas of peppery spice, violet and cranberry start off this Negroamaro. There's a softness to the feel at first, yet bright acidity quickly brightens up the palate and propels along the flavors of tart red berries. Light tannins and ripe cherry show good resolve on the finish.

Wine SpectatorRound and easy-drinking, this creamy red is light- to medium-bodied, with hints of black cherry coulis, licorice and smoke. Drink now.
