Professional Wine Reviews for Castello Monaci Negroamaro Maru 2017

Rated 88 by Wine Advocate
I had expected the Castello Monaci 2017 Negroamaro Maru to be a lot jammier based on the heat of the vintage. The name Maru means "very dark" in local dialect. Showing a mid-weight style instead, the wine unloads lots of bright cherry notes. What you get is an easy-drinking and cheerful Negroamaro from a gorgeous estate (and popular wedding designation) in the Salento.
Winery
The term "Maru" translates into dark or severe and correctly describes some of the characteristics of Puglia's native Negroamaro grape. The 2013 Castello Monaci Maru Negroamaro Salento has intense dark berry and spicy aromas, round and ripe on the palate with an excellent structure.

Winery Castello Monaci

Region: Puglia

The southern Italian region of Puglia, known as the 'heel' of the country, is home to Italy's most up and coming wineries, keen to demonstrate to the world that the poor reputation they had in the seventies and eighties no longer applies. The wines of Puglia are certainly full of character, often big, bright and juicy, and full of strong dark fruit flavours. The Puglian wines are also renowned for being slightly more alcoholic and structured than those found further north, giving wine drinkers plenty to experience and discuss when sampling the region's complex and fascinating wares. Puglia is, in essence, a region of deep traditions, and the wine makers there are determined to stick to their traditional techniques and methods, and keep the unique identity of Puglian wine alive in the twenty first century.

Country: Italy

Italy is recognised as being one of the finest wine producing countries in the world, and it isn't difficult to see why. With a vast amount of land across the country used primarily for vineyard cultivation and wine production, each region of Italy manages to produce a wide range of excellent quality wines, each representative of the region it is produced in. Any lover of Italian wines will be able to tell you of the variety the country produces, from the deliciously astringent and alpine-fresh wines of the northern borders, to the deliciously jammy and fruit-forward wines of the south and the Italian islands. Regions such as Barolo are frequently compared with Bordeaux and Burgundy in France, as their oak aged red wines have all the complexity and earthy, spicy excellence of some of the finest wines in the world, and the sparkling wines of Asti and elsewhere in Italy can easily challenge and often exceed the high standards put forward by Champagne. Thanks to excellent terrain and climatic conditions, Italy has long since proven itself a major player in the world of wines, and long may this dedication to quality and excellence continue.
