Natalie's Score: 88/100

Vintages Wine Panel: With a history dating back to 1665, Leone de Castris has a rich and long-standing winemaking tradition. This complex Primitivo shows notes of licorice, plum and dried fruit. The palate is dry, rich and layered, with a spicy tone and a very long, herbal-nuanced finish. My note: Black, savoury, brooding and delicious. This is a blackberry liqueur blockbuster with a tobacco smoke finish. Fantastic with meaty dishes. Primitivo Di Manduria food pairings: jambalaya with smoked sausage, gourmet hamburgers with gorgonzola cheese.
