Description

Negroamaro is considered the main native grape variety of Salento, with an excellent content of tannins and flavour compounds that give intense but elegant, fruity and spicy wines. Negroamaro is also known by its high content in resveratrol, an antioxidant and anticancer substance present in other black grape varieties but found in relevant quantities only in Negroamaro.

HARVEST: manual harvest is carried out in the early hours of dawn, when low temperatures and dry weather help preserving freshness and aroma; the bunches are placed in small baskets of 5 kg and quickly taken to the cellar, avoiding unwanted macerations or early fermentations.

Cantine Paololeo

If it is true that behind every bottle of wine there is always a nice story to tell, the one of Paololeo wines is a simple but beautiful story, just like all the family stories are.

Today Paololeo winery is a modern company: it covers an area of 17,000 square meters and is equipped with a very modern winemaking system, a large barrel room and a cutting-edge bottling line capable of bottling  7000 bottles per hour.

However, the "heart" of all the current area under vines are still those 25 hectares where, at the beginning of the twentieth century, the great-grandfather began to vinify his grapes in Masseria Monticello. Then his nephew Paolo Leo inherited the land and built the winery.

Today it is still an heir, the namesake Paolo Leo, son of Nicola, to lead the new winery, together with his wife Roberta and his eldest sons Nicola and Stefano, who are paving the way for the younger brothers Francesco and Alessandro.
