Exploring Salento, the land of Salice Salentino wine

28 Giu

Together with Primitivo and Negroamaro, Salice Salentino is the third native wine of Salento. Local food and wine products are an original and “tasty” way to explore our land and its culinary traditions. Together with the classic touristic itineraries among beaches and sea, we offer you a short trip between the provinces of Lecce and Brindisi, to discover the Salice Salentino.

PRODUCTION

Salice Salentino is a DOC wine, whose production takes place in the provinces of Brindisi and Lecce. Veglie, Guagnano and Campi Salentina, in the province of Lecce, San Pancrazio Salentino, Sandonaci and Cellino San Marco, in the province of Brindisi, are the municipalities where the wine is produced, from the vines Negroamaro, black Malvasia of Brindisi and black Malvasia of Lecce.

Salice Salentino is divided into six different types of wine, among which there are red, white, rosé and pinot bianco (also present with the sparkling type), sweet aleatico and sweet liqueur aleatico.

FEATURES

The wine has a more or less intense ruby ​​red color. The smell is pleasant and intense, while the flavor is robust but velvety. These properties make Salice Salentino particularly recommended on roasts, strong cheeses and game.

HISTORY

The origin of the DOC denomination of Salice Salentino is due to Senator Arcangelo de Castris, who, thanks to his winery “Leone De Castris”, has managed to affirm the value of this particular wine in Italy and worldwide. The winery, one of the oldest still in operation, was founded in 1665 by Duke Oronzo Arcangelo Maria Francesco De Castris, count of Lemos.

In the early 1800s the winery began exporting wine to the United States, Germany and France. Five Roses was born in 1943, the company’s best-known product and the first rosé wine to be bottled and marketed in Italy and immediately exported to the United States.

Exploring Salento, the land of Primitivo wine

14 Giu

Do you want to explore Salento in an different way? We suggest you an alternative way to visit our land, following the Via del Primitivo, a wine of local production which, together with Negroamaro, is one of the main products of Salento. Through a path that combines taste with history, we discover the origins and properties of this wonderful grape variety.

From Manduria to Lizzano, passing through S. Giorgio Jonico, Pulsano, Leporano, San Marzano di San Giuseppe, Sava and Avetrana, here they are the villages where we can find Primitivo wine. With a red color and an intense flavor, Primitivo goes well with cheeses, legume soups, grilled lamb.

FEATURES

Always used as a cutting wine, today Primitivo di Manduria represents one of the main product of Salento’s enology. The notes of sweet and ripe fruit (blackberries, cherries, plums) and spices define the taste of Primitivo, a wine with low acidity and high alcohol content.

Dry as a meal or natural dessert, the wine goes perfectly with grilled meats or aged cheeses. Primitivo is also the perfect companion for traditional Apulian sweets with ricotta, almond and dried fig fillings. A glass of Primitivo is fine even if tasted alone: you’ll be able to appreciate its particular notes. There are two different types: Primitivo di Manduria DOC and Primitivo di Manduria natural sweet DOCG.

Pasticciotto

HISTORY

It is not clear when the vine came in Salento. Maybe it was the ancient Greeks who brought it here or the Romans from Dalmatia. In fact, the wine is genetically very similar to the Crljenak Kastelsnski cultivated from Istria to the Sabbioncello peninsula. Another descendant from Primitivo is Zinfandel, a California cult species. In fact, it seems that, in the early nineteenth century, it was exported overseas by some Apulian migrant.

For the production of wine, the harvests take place at night, the only time when you can have respite from the heat and the sun. In 2011, in the Dolce Naturale version, the Primitivo becomes DOCG, protected and enhanced by the presence of the Primitivo Protection Consortium.

ITINERARIES

The Primitivo paths unfold in unparalleled naturalistic scenarios. We suggest you to bring comfortable shoes and a camera to capture the enchanting landscapes, such as the Natural Reserves of the Eastern Tarantino Coast: from the salt pans animated by numerous species of birds, including pink flamingos, to the marshes embellished with multiple varieties of orchids, holm oak woods and the presence of the Chidro river, custodian of Roman necropolises.

Lastly, we recommend a visit to the Museum of the Primitive Wine Civilization, testimony of the social history and agrarian vocation of this land.
