Castello Monaci Primitivo Salento IGT Piluna 2009
External Reviews for Castello Monaci Primitivo Salento IGT Piluna
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 2009 Primitivo Piluna opens with an explosive burst of dark red fruit. The Piluna is a beautifully balanced Primitivo, with plenty of richness but little of the heaviness or stewed character that plagues so many other interpretations of Italys version of Zinfandel. ** Only 12 in Stock **
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 haven't discovered Primitivo owe it to themselves to do so. This is a great starting point. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2011.
The 2007 Primitivo Pilna 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: 2009-2011.
