Maybe not as amazing as the Masseria, but I still like it a lot. would be a great, not too overpowering food wine for a less powerful dish. nice dark plums and balanced acidity.

89 Points Robert Parker, Jr., The Wine Advocate publication date: Feb 1 2008 "The Negroamaro Maru isn't quite as generous as the Piluna but it does reveal an exotic expression of dried figs, plums, cherries, spices, herbs and tobacco. It is an absolutely delicious wine to drink now and over the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2011."

This is a well-crafted, elegant wine with pretty mineral tones that frame a core of black cherry and spice. The wine offers the precise qualities mdash; structure, good freshness and clean fruit aromas mdash; that promises a successful pairing with most Mediterranean foods.

The 2006 Negroamaro Maru isnrsquo;t quite as generous as the Piluna but it does reveal an exotic expression of dried figs, plums, cherries, spices, herbs and tobacco. It is an absolutely delicious wine to drink now and over the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2008ndash;2011.


Winemaker's Notes:

Summary The term "Maru" translates into dark or severe and correctly describes some of the characteristics of Puglia's native Negroamaro grape. Terroir: The Castello Monaci Maru Negroamaro is sourced from estate vineyards surrounding the 16th century winery. This varietal is typically harvested in early September. Vinification: The fruit is hand-harvested at dawn to preserve sugar levels and avoid the heat of the sun. Each parcel is vinified separately in small stainless steel tanks followed by blending and then 6 months aging in 75% stainless steel and 25% 2nd and 3rd use French oak. 80,000 bottles produced.
