Castello Monaci 2007 Salento Primitivo Piluna

Deep ruby color.

Smell of plum, black cherry, leather, oak.

Bitter tones in the stone-fruit flavor, oak builds to finish.

The next day still a pleasant, impressive, fruit-bomb. Global warming, you are my friend, and Primitivo much benefits from it's journey as Zinfandel.

A fair buy for $14.49, but I'm not inclined to buy again.
