Castello Monaci Piluna is a vigorous and evocative red. It has a dark purple red color. The olfactory bouquet is broad, fruity, with notes of ripe red fruit and black cherry and marasca cherry jam; followed by hints of pepper and vanilla with flavors of Mediterranean scrub. The taste is soft and concentrated, with a finish that recalls small berry jam. Warm, intense and engaging, it is perfect for a cheerful evening with friends, to accompany meat-based first courses, grilled meat, roasts and aged cheeses.

Ratings and awards
Rich, plummy and soft - a really enjoyable drop - beautiful soft dark fruit with licorice, slight vanilla and oak notes. Very well balanced primitivo, med+ body, soft tickling tannins, nicely integrated acidity. Perceptable cherries, strawberries, hints of chocolate and coffee which are also main players in long lulling aftertaste. It doesn't matter you love or hate primitivo but particularly this example should sweeten every wine lover or enthusiast.
Full on Primitivo
I have always enjoyed a Primitivo but it's usually fairly hard to find in restaurants and shops so I'm glad I found this on Vinissimus. It's a great powerful wine, very good with a homemade pizza!
Well I loved it
This wine was not the most expensive but once open it just had to be drunk, Filled the room with lovely aromas, not to heavy in fact just right for me, one glass was not enough??

Good value deep red.
Deep coloured and full flavoured wine. Enough flavour interest not to be drowned by the alcohol. Good value at this price.
