Castello Monaci Pilùna Primitivo 2015
Wine AdvocateHere's a great value wine to pair with grilled meats and Italian sausage with onions and bell pepper. The 2015 Primitivo Pilùna shows a modern and well etched bouquet with ripe fruit tones of blackberry and Morello cherry backed by spice, cinnamon and shadings of nutmeg or allspice. The oak influences have left their mark. On the palate, the wine offers soft tannins and a fruit-forward narrative. Soapy and floral notes of dried lavender add an unexpected touch.
Wine SpectatorA zesty red, featuring wild raspberry and strawberry flavors and accents of ground pink peppercorn, star anise and dried marjoram. Medium-bodied and juicy, with a chewy finish. Drink now through 2019. 2,800 cases imported.
