"The 2004 Primitivo Artas (85% Primitivo, 15% Negroamaro) is a voluptuous, richly-textured wine. Gorgeous notes of dark fruit, tobacco, leather, tobacco, plums and figs flow from the glass with notable depth and palate presence. This is a superb wine to drink now and over the next decade or so. It is a terrific effort from Castello Monaci. The wine was aged for 12 months in French oak. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2018." "And now Artas has finally made it. At its fourth appearance in the finals, it finally emerged with Three Glasses. The estate is part of the Gruppo Italiano Vini stable and has 150 hectares under vine with quality improvements regularly apparent. The '04 Artas is the best ever. The wine comes from Primitivo with 15 percent Negroamaro, and reflects a perfect balance of tradition and innovation. There are aromas of tobacco, black berry fruits, vanilla and antique wood. The elegant, soft palate is rich and full, and has flavours of liqueur cherries and chocolate, good backbone and a well-defined finish that makes for suppleness and attractive drinking." - Tre Bicchieri Award ** Only 2 in Stock **

Oak renderings of spice and toast dominate this hearty Primitivo at first but eventually give way to molasses, plum cake and candied fruit. The wine is big and sticky with sour almond flavors and would pair with meat stew or aged cheese.
