Winemaker Notes

Liante ("Wind of the Levant") is the icy wind of winter and the hot one of summer, which gusts fiercely through most of the Adriatic, particularly Puglia. The liante is a symbol for a land that breathes.

With intense, complex aromas of wild cherry conserve, dried plums, chocolate and vanilla, the wine shows powerful, ripe dark fruit and spices on the palate, with a pleasant finish. The wine is a great match with spicy foods like Fra Diavolo sauce.

"The estate's 2006 Salice Salentino Liante (80% Negroamaro, 20% Malvasia) is another beauty. Made in a very sweet, ripe style, it offers notes of plums, prunes, leather, tar, smoke and earthiness. It should continue to drink well over the next several years. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2011.

Castello Monaci makes a range of beautiful wines that highlight the unique qualities of Apulia's indigenous varieties."

Castello Monaci
Castello Monaci has a big “M,” as a symbol. It is a new brand which stands for the union of the work of man with that of the sun. More than the sum of two parts, Castello Monaci is a unique, new whole. Not far from the town and the sea, on the road from Lecce to Taranto, at the gates of Salice Salentino surrounded by centuries-old vegetation, are located 150 hectares: the vineyards of Castello Monaci. It is a place where modernity and tradition meet.

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 subterranean rock, the geometric-shaped cellar houses 1,000 barriques and modern temperature-controlled systems that allow small parcels of grapes to be vinified separately.
