3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

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
Rich purple in color, inviting aromas of spiced cherries and black fruits complement undertones of tobacco and dried plums. It is a full-bodied wine, warm and soft on the palate with flavors that continue to evolve into the finish.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 90 points (Aug 2010)
The 2009 Primitivo di Manduria Villa Santera is a joyous red bursting with varietal character. Dark fruit, licorice, clovers and flowers emerge with lovely inner sweetness, adding complexity to the dense, expressive fruit. This is another winner from Leone de Castris. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2014.

Technical notes
Varietal Composition 100% Primitivo
