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."
