Paolo Leccisi is the vice president of Sampietrana, a cantina sociale near the port of Brindisi. In addition to his involvement in Sampietrana, Paolo makes and markets wines under his own label.

 

The southern Italian region of Puglia is a rich source of excellent value wines with many indigenous varieties to chose from - although Negroamaro must be at the top of the ladder - and prices should be in the 8-12 bracket (anything less is probably too cheap; nothing needs to cost much over 10). We were looking for a good "house" wine from the region and found Paolo's "Il Porporato" to be a cut above the rest.
