Castello Monaci-Rosso Salento Campure Metrano. Puglia IGT

External Review by eVintner Wines and Spirits:

This Salice Salentino is made from 80% Negroamaro and 20% Malvasia Nera. The color is a deep ruby-red and the aroma is loaded with dried prunes, cherries and chocolate. This rich wine delivers a broad mouthful of dried cherries, plums and cassis along with some subtle minerality and smoke. There is good acidity paired with smooth tannins that contribute to a lingering, harmonious finish. Pair this wine with some chicken and capers braised in spicy tomato sauce, and you will really appreciate this Southern Italian red.

The tufa (‘rocks’) of local soils contribute structure to the wine, aid in drainage for the vines, and reflect the light, helping the sun’s work for the vines. Dug out of subterranean rock, the geometric-shaped cellar houses 1,000 barriques and modern temperature-controlled systems that allow small parcels of grapes to be vinified separately. Read less
