Squinzano is a town and comune in the province of Lecce in the Apulia region of south-east Italy.

Squinzano is also a specific area within the Puglia wine region. Squinzano DOC is produced in red and rosé versions, and is obtained principally from the Negro Amaro grape, with a small addition of Malvasia Nera di Brindisi and Malvasia Nera di Lecce.[2]
