Castello Monaci Liante Salentino 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

With intense, complex aromas of wild cherry conserve, dried plums, chocolate and vanilla, the wine shows powerful, ripe dark fruit and spices on the palate, with a pleasant finish. The wine is a great match with spicy foods like Fra Diavolo sauce.

The choice of grape varieties is a combination of local viticultural tradition–indigenous Negroamaro, Primitivo and Malvasia Nera–with scientific vineyard management through a careful selection of clones and root stocks.

The 2008 Salice Salentino Liante is a 80% Negroamaro and 20% Malvasia Nera blend partially aged in oak. This sleek, harmonious red floats across the palate with silky fruit, sweet herbs and spices. Year in year out the Liante is a great value, as it is again in 2008. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2012. ** Only 5 in Stock **
