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.
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.
Pair this wine with sweet Italian sausage, fresh berry coulis, jamón iberico, and barbecued ribs.
