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 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.

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."
