Grape: Primitivo

Tasting Notes: Blackberry, Plum, Vanilla, Pepper

Castello Monaci is a benchmark producer crafting wines from Southern Italy’s indigenous grapes. The region of Puglia is drenched in the most intense sunlight in all of Italy tempered only by the breezes off the Adriatic and Ionian seas. The Castello Monaci estate is housed in a 16th century castle with medieval foundations once run by Basilian monks who maintained a long winemaking tradition. Lina Memmo, whose family has owned the estate since the 19th century, and husband Vitantonio Seracca Guerrieri, currently own the property. 

Primitivo is related and similar to Zinfandel in the United States.  Castello Monaci's grapes are sustainability certified by DNV-GL, a globally recognized firm. Pilùna is a young Primitivo that displays all of the grape's best qualities; rich & dark fruit, and peppery spice. This is a medium body wine, zesty with balanced fruit and soft tannins. It has minimal oak influence so it boasts an impressive freshness that really captures the essence of the grape and terroir. A perfect wine to drink on its own or with pizza, burgers or barbecue.
