Leone de Castris SALENTO Wine Dinner at Furnirussi

Written by Aksel Ritenis


Leone de Castris is one of the top producers in Puglia and since 1665 the Leone de Castris family have operated the oldest winery in Puglia. Amongst their achievements, the firm is credited with the invention of the famed red wine called Salice Salentino DOC over 50 years ago.

Their large holdings produce a wide range of wines, some of which were on tasting at the dinner.

From my experience tasting the wines in and around Lecce and other locations in Puglia, at different bars and Restaurants, this renage of wines is intersting in its diversity, and the wines are very reliable, if not excellent in quality and value.
