    Winemaker's 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."

    This wine is dynamite, it can easily hang with wine that is priced in the $50-75 range. I have recommended it to a Som at exclusive restaurant in, he tried it, bought 2 cases on the same day. Too bad it is sold out, this stuff is really good.

    The Castello Moaci Liante possesses the complexity and aromatics of wines costing twice the price. Excellent Salice Salentino and a great value.

    It's good, but comarable Salice Salentinos are on the market at half the price.
