This wine has a deep black cherry color core with a slight transparency. On the nose there is pronounced black licorice mingling with black cherry and a hint of mint. On the palate the wine is dry, medium bodied, medium level of tannins and mouth-watering acidity. The flavors are dominated the black cherry (slightly ripe fruit) with a hint of nutmeg and cinnamon. The finish is clean with a long length lingering flavors simiar to the nose.

Winemaker’s Notes - Pilùna means "pot made of clay" in Greek, and it's an homage to the traditional container in which the farmers would store water. The clay is a symbol for a land that breathes.

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. Best paired with roasts, red meat, pasta in meat sauce, hard cheeses, grilled meats and beef.

Producer
Located near the bucolic town of Salice Salentino in Puglia, the "heel” of "Italy’s boot” which is an idyllic spot situated between the Adriatic and Tirrenean seas, is the new property of Castello Monaci. The eponymous castle is nestled amid groves of centuries old olive trees, and a long road slices straight through the estate’s 150 hectares of vineyards, forming what Monaci terms a meridian, an imaginary line which is the highest point in the sky reached by the sun.
