Castello Monaci Liante Salice Salentino DOC 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

In der Nase entfalten sich Aromen von betörender Frucht: Kirschen, Beeren, Zwetschgen, Dörrfrüchte. Summa summarum ein Erlebnis von hoher Intensität und grosser Vielfalt. Dieser Salice Salentino von Castello Monaci zeigt aber auch im Gaumen, was er zu bieten hat: Frucht, Schmelz und Ausgewogenheit. Der Sinneseindruck im Finale ist anhaltend, zugänglich und zeigt viel Charme.

Castello Monaci:
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 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 subte... Read more
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 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

Classic Salice gaining sweet fruit and wild berry tones from the addition of the Malvasia (20%). The wine retains classic tarry notes on the nose that compliment the boysenberry and dried plum fruit tones but in the palate this is dark and spicy with notes of barrel ageing accenting the dried cherry and chocolate tones. A modernish take on Salice but Negroamaro is not a grape easily tamed. 88pts

Wine Advocate ReviewRated 90The estates 2006 Salice Salentino Liante (80% Negroamaro, 20% Malvasia) is another beauty. Made in a very sweet, ripe style, it offers notes of plums, prunes, leather, tar, smoke and earthiness. It should continue to drink beautifully over the next several years. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2011.Wine Tasting NotesWith 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.
