Description

Cantine Paolo Leo bring true Italian expertise in their range of wines from the Salento appellation of Puglia. The Salice Salentino PDO gains its status as a true representation of the finest that Salento can offer. Negroamaro  is the main varietal, blended with a small amount of other native Apulian red varieties from this select area. This Riserva uses hand harvested old vine grapes (average 50 years) aged for at least 24 months  before release, with 12 months in French oak barriques, 6 months in large oak barrels, 4 months in steel and the remainder in bottle.

Ruby red in colour with garnet reflections, this wine has a powerful nose of jammy fruit reminiscent of berries, plums and medlars. They are joined by spices playing on shades of black pepper, liquorice and anise. The round and full body is harmonious, with silky enveloping tannins and a persistent, decisive and warm finish. Try with pan-fried meats, spicy vegetables, long-cooked stews or roast pork.

The Paolo Leo line represents the history and hard work of a family that more than thirty years ago decided to launch its first bottles on the market, with an international reputation following soon after. Wines reflect their passion and taste with vineyards located in the heart of the Negroamaro Park, with predominantly clay-limestone soils. Cellars are located in Salice Salentino DOC and Primitivo di Manduria DOC, and are equipped with state of the art vinification systems. Most wines use organic-certified farming methods.
