Leone de Castris Primitivo di Manduria Villa Santera Italian Red Wine 750 mL


Rich purple in color, inviting aromas of spiced cherries and black fruits complement undertones of tobacco and dried plums. It is a full-bodied wine, warm and soft on the palate with flavors that continue to evolve into the finish.

James Suckling 90 points  (2021 vintage) “Rich strawberries and spices to the nose with a fine twist of prunes. Medium body with juicy berries and plums rounded by some nicely chewy tannins. Good generosity to the palate, showing some sweet/sour fruit in a positive, discreet manner. Drink now.” September 2022

Villa Santera is named after a historic villa, which belongs to the Leone de Castris family, located in the province of Taranto. The Primitivo di Manduria appellation is known for the production of bold and spicy reds. This wine is no exception, from mature vines-40 years old. It is a concentrated and layered example of a true classic from Puglia.
