Family owned – highlights quality of less fashionable varietals
Situated on the outskirts of Galatina, not far from the city of Lecce, Santi Dimitri is a traditional vineyard that has undergone a revival in recent times.
Taken over in 1996 by Vincenzo Vallone, whose family has a long-standing agricultural heritage, the estate underwent numerous changes, the appointment of head winemaker Giusseppe Pizzolante Leuzzi resembling a particularly key step towards the modernisation of their techniques.
The endeavours of the Vallone family prove the potential quality of wines from less fashionable regions. Their Primitivo offers particularly excellent value for money, capturing the sunshine soaked terroirs of Galatina perfectly.
Black cherries jam, medium bodied, dried oregano,wild aromas of black fruits, game, leather and bitter chocolate, lifted by a peppery nuance.
