TCD Opinion
Best drunk as an accompaniment to food, the wine is dry with a great aroma. As with all good DOC wines this is meant to complement food and not to overpower it.

A great wine to accompany food at a very good price. Good quality, cheap, dry white.

Grape100% Primitivo di Manduria D.O.C.

TasteSweet and fruity blackberry tastes.
ColourIntense dark red.
TCD Opinion
An extremely well balanced wine to be enjoyed young. The wine manages a great balance of tannins and yet is high in alcohol content. The flavour is one of blackberry's and licorice and leaves a bittersweet aftertaste for 30 seconds on the tongue. This wine goes through a long maceration process that produces the flavours and colour so unique to this wine.

A typical wine from Puglia. The 2005 Primitivo di Manduria is a major success for the vintage with its dark violet color, its nose of cherries, spice, and licorice, and its...

A score of 87 for an excellent wine that has made something of a come back after a few poor vintages. The 2005 was excitidly heralded by the producers and the final product deserves the hype; you will not be disappointed.

TCD Opinion
The 2004 Salice Salentino Riserva has all the classic nose and palate of a Negro Amaro-based wine. Its packed with red fruit, has hints of leather and a smooth alcoholic warmth. Drinking well in 2007 but could take 1-2 years more to fully reach it's potential.

Leone De Castris
 
North-west of Salentine Peninsula, zone of old wine growing and wine producing traditions, lies Salice Salentino, a small rural town which boasts the more than three century old wineryLeone de Castris.

Among the fertile vineyards of that time, just where nowadays the works rise, Duke Oronzo Arcangelo Maria Francesco de Castris Lemos'Count (Ferrante and Francisco's nephew both Spanish viceroy in Italy) founded the first winery. It was the year 1665. The Duke was a wise and far-sighted man; therefore, after the first few years of product processing, he rushed to Spain, sold some of his possesions, came back and invested his earnings in the Salentine lands.

Round Salice, Guagnano, Veglie, Villa Baldassarri, Novoli and San Pancrazio the Duke came into possesion of as much as 5 thousand hectares, on which not only did he plant new species of vine, but even olives and wheat. At beginning of the 19th century the winery began to export unprocessed wine to the United States of America, Germany and France.

The winery began bottling its product with Piero e Lisetta Leone de Castris,in 1925. In 1943 the production of Five Roses, the most famous product of the firm started and it was the the first rosè to be bottled and made marketable in Italy.

During last war, the Saletine Rosè by Leone de Castris, FIVE ROSES, was exported to the United States. This wine is named after a "contrada" (a rural zone) in the feud of Salice Salentino, which is called "Cinque Rose" (five roses). This zone is so called because for many generations each de Castris has had five children. At the end of last war, General Charles Poletti, Supply Officer of the Allied Forces, asked for large supply of rosè. However, he required a wine with an American name. FIVE ROSES was, thus, born.

The history of this family and of the winery is still going. On. Cavaliere del Lavoro Salvatore Leone de Castris has contributed to a very important development - also as international level - of the Company.
