Description

Five Roses Anniversario of Leone De Castris winery was produced for the first time with the vintage '93, in the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the "Five Roses" (the first rosè wine bottled in Italy) and, precisely for this reason, obtained from the oldest vineyards of the estate. Compared to the traditional Five Roses, the "Anniversario" version is different for taste, being obtained from 80% Negroamaro (compared to the usual 90%) and 20% Malvasia Nera of Lecce (versus 10%) grapes.
Harvest takes place during the first decade of September. After de-stimming and soft crushing, the grapes macerates at 7-10 °C for a few hours, before the extraction of free-run must (about 35%). The wine is fermented under controlled temperature at 18-20 °C and it is aged for at least 1 month in steel and another month in the bottle.

TASTING NOTES

Five Roses Anniversario presents a charming glittery rose quartz colour. Inebriating scents of blueberry and red currant prepare the nose for pink floral notes. The taste is rich in fresh acidity, excellent texture with a fruity and persistent finish. We suggest to serve it at 10-12 °C.

FOOD MATCHING SUGGESTIONS

The ideal food matching for Five Roses Anniversario of Leone De Castris winery? Sublime with delicious risottos, fish dishes and white meat. Great also with sushi and as a fresh summer aperitif.

Curiosity: why "Five Roses"?
The name recalls a district in Salice Salentino's feud, the so-called "Cinque Rose", but also that tradition linked to the fact that for many generations every Leone de Castris had five children. But, it was at the end of the last war that General Charles Poletti, commissioner for supply of allied forces, asked for a large supply of rosè wine. Italian wine, of course, but strictly American in the name. So the Five Roses was born.

Leone De Castris

Salice Salentino, a small village in Salento, Puglia, rich in vineyards and olive trees, is the landscape giving life to Leone de Castris’ wine tradition. It is exactly here, on the very spot where today’s cellar stands, that in 1665 Duke Oronzo, Earl of Lemos, gave birth to the company. From the beginning of the 19th century the Winery used to export bulk wine to the United States, Germany and France until when whit Piero and Lisetta Leone de Castris, the bottling had its start in 1925.
