Castello Monaci Artas Salento IGT Primitivo 2009

External Review by We Speak Wine:

The estates top of the line 2009 Primitivo Salento Artas is quite pretty. A juicy, perfumed wine, the Artas stands out for its varietal nuance and expressiveness. There is plenty of depth to the 2009, but no sense of heaviness. Once again, the Artas is a standout. The 2009 Castello Monaci Artas is explosively rich and layered with ripe, sun-drenched berry fruit, black pepper spice and smoky oak. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **

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
