Professional Wine Reviews for Leone De Castris Salice Salentino Donna Lisa Riserva 2015

Rated 95 by Decanter
Aspirational Negroamaro! A veritable fruit basket of ripe blackberries, cherries, plums and lingonberries intermingled with delicious spicy oak, grainy, velvety tannins and a fine, highly polished finish.
Rated 92 by James Suckling
This is a literal breath of fresh air in the Puglia wine scene; on the nose it offers cassis, nicely judged blackcurrants, brambleberries and even citrus. Tightly wound with a compact texture, bright acidity and a chewy finish. Drink in 2021.

Winery Leone De Castris

Region: Puglia

Puglia is one of Italy's most fascinating and 'up and coming' wine regions, and is full of traditional wineries keen to prove to the world that the produce of southern Italy can more than match that which comes from the central and northern regions of the country. Puglian wines are quite unique; they are generally big, bold and boisterous when it comes to flavor and structure, and are packed full of complex, dark and interesting notes, making them fascinating to taste and explore. Puglia itself is a beautiful wine region, and the volcanic soils and blazing sunshine of the Mediterranean coast is something of an ideal environment for viticulture. As such, Puglia is a region to keep a close eye on in the near future, should you wish to sample the best of Italy's latest, most exciting wines.

Country: Italy

For several decades in the mid to late twentieth century, Italy's reputation for quality wines took a fairly serious blow. This was brought about partly due to lack of regulation in certain regions, and too much regulation in others. This led to several wineries in the beautiful and highly fertile region of Tuscany making the bold move to work outside of the law, which they saw as responsible for the drop in quality in Tuscan wines. They believed that they had the expertise and the generations of experience necessary with which to make truly excellent, world class wines, and set about doing just that. These 'Super Tuscans', as they came to be known, quickly inspired the rest of Italy to improve their produce, and now, Italian wine producers in the twenty-first century are widely recognised to be amongst the best in the world. Regulation and law began to change, and wine drinkers across the globe woke up to the outstanding wines coming out of Italy, which are continuing to improve and impress to this day.
