The 2007 Primitivo Pilugrave;na flows from the glass with waves of dark red fruit. This generous, ripe wine should continue to drink well for at least another year or two. It is another incredibly delicious value-priced red from Castello Monaci. Anticipated maturity: 2009ndash;2011.

A very precise mineral quality that recalls slate roof and granite defines this wine and delivers a linear and drying experience overall. The wine has charm and elegance with lingering spice notes on the finish.

The 2008 Primitivo Piluna comes across as a bit light in the vintage. The style is somewhat fleeting, although the plums, tobacco and perfumed spices are quite attractive. Anticipated maturity: 2010ndash;2012.

Castello Monaci "Piluna" Primitivo Salento IGT 2008 750ML

The 2006 Primitivo Piluna is a wine of uncommon beauty. This vibrant, pure red shimmers on the palate with layers of dark cherries, sweet herbs, licorice and tobacco. It offers outstanding length and terrific balance. Readers who havenrsquo;t discovered Primitivo owe it to themselves to do so. This is a great starting point. Anticipated maturity: 2008ndash;2011.

Winemaker's Notes:

The wine has broad, ripe black fruit and spice aromas, with notes of pepper, toasty vanilla and Mediterranean scrub. On the palate, the wine has a robust, concentrated character, a firm structure, and small black fruit and licorice notes on the aftertaste.
