Castello Monaci Primitivo Salento IGT Artas 2006

Member Review by lingprof:

Very disappointed. It tasted strongly of rubber with caramel to me. I tried it after a couple of days, thinking it maybe needed to breathe. No luck. Maybe I got a bad bottle?

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.

I had friends over the other day and tasted several Puglia wines. 2004 Notarparnaro, 2000 Patrimonio, Feline 2006, and Artas 2006. Everyone voted the Artas as the best wine. I got the Artas for a very good price from an online shop in Germany. The next day we wanted to order more and for some odd reason they were sold out! Someone must have beaten me to it.

"For a second year in a row, the Artas returns home with a Three Glass Crown. This 100% Primitivo shows a garnet ruby appearance and a complex nose of fig, pomegranate and plum jam. This palate is full, rich and fruity with a long, refreshing, dynamic finish." ** Only 10 in Stock **
