Primitivo di Manduria Villa Santera
2016 Leone De Castris

Varietal: 100% Primitivo

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, skillfully crafted from hand-picked grapes grown on very mature vines-40 years old on average. It is a concentrated and layered example of a true classic from Puglia.

TASTING NOTES: Very deep red in colour turning almost purplish. The nose reveals a rich perfume of plum, black cherry and also spices as ginger and vanilla. On the palate it is full bodied and velvety and well balanced.
