Piluna or “pot made of tufa” in Greek is the name chosen for this Primitivo. A name evocative of a land which breathes, dedicated to its best indigenous grape varieties, a lively, generous, intense name like the place from which it comes.
The Castello Monaci PILUNA Primitivo Salento has dark crimson-red colour; full bouquet of ripe red fruits and cherry conserve, with notes of pepper and vanilla and hints of Mediterranean scrub; robust, concentrated, soft but very firm flavour with an elegant, lingering aftertaste of small black fruits conserve and liquorice.
