Salice Salentino Donna Lisa Riserva 2017
90% Negroamaro, 10% Malvasia Nera di Lecce
Rich hints of tarry smoke and toast on the nose underscore baked strawberry and plum fruit flavors in this robust, full-bodied red. Tightly-knit and fresh, a stemmy touch of dried herb lingers on the grippy finish. Decant. Negroamaro and Malvasia Nera. Drink now through 2027. 3,300 cases made, 100 cases imported.
Leone de Castris winery has been founded in 1665 and since then has been always making wines from local grapes. In 1943, we have bottled the first italian rose wine, the iconic “Five Roses”. Our mission is still making the most from the local grapes reflecting the Salento’s terroir, respecting our long traditions while looking toward the future.
