Leone De Castris , whose foundation dates back to 1665, is a reference cellar for Apulian oenology : the first company to bottle wine in the region. Its vineyards are distributed throughout the Salento peninsula, divided between a plurality of estates in which the native grape varieties take on distinctive features.

"Five Roses" (Daily Wine for the Slow Wine Guide) of 1943 is also the first rosé wine in Italy , also signed by Leone De Castris, based on Negroamaro grapes, whose name derives from the "Cinque Rose" district of Salice Salentino, but which at the end of the Second World War was requested by the general of the allied troops Charles Poletti, who was looking for a wine with an American name and it is from here that he was called with the translated name. A selection of this wine is also proposed, the 50 Vendemmie which obtained the coveted recognition 4 Viti of the AIS guide for the current vintage.

The range of wines is curated by the oenologist Marco Mascellani who makes use of the collaboration of the well-known oenologist Riccardo Cotarella , with wines such as the Salice Salentino Riserva 50 ° Vendemmia contained in the characteristic Porto bottle (Gold Medal at the Sommelier Wine Awards of 2018) , or the "Donna Lisa" Malvasia Bianca (90 pt. out of 99 Luca Maroni) and the Riserva (91 pt. Luca Maroni). The "Per Lui" range represents the expression of the highest quality level of the production of native Apulian vines of Leone de Castris, as evidenced by Primitivo (91 pt. Out of 99 Luca Maroni) and Salice Salentino Riserva (92 pt. Luca Maroni) .
