"Piluna" translates into "pot of clay" or an ancient container used to store water or wine. This 100% Primitivo is grown from vineyards surrounding the ancient Castello Monaci estate in Puglia. 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.
Smooth & Supple
This was a very nice, full bodied, well-balanced, smooth red that was fabulous with my dry-aged ribeye. Flavors were as described plus some cherry, esp in the long finish. Good value. 90 pts.
