Winemaker's Tasting Notes
"Strong ruby-red colour; attractive bouquet. Produced from 100% Malvasia nera di Lecce grapes, it has a deep, ruby red colour and an attractive, fine and intensely fruity bouquet. The taste is balanced and velvety with touches of sweet licorice." Food matches: flavour-some first courses, oven-roast or grilled red meats, mature cheeses."
About Medos Malvasia Nera Salento
"Not far from the town of Lecce and from the sea, on the road to Taranto, at the gates of Salice Salentino,
centuries-old olive trees and luxuriant vineyards surround Castello Monaci.
The long corridor which links the main road to the castle is a line which goes through the estate, a
meridian which divides the vineyards and opens the gates to the modern cellar. Here spreads the sun
which floods the land with light and creates unique shapes, like the fruits to which it gives birth.
Castello Monaci. Crafted by the sun.
Medos, from the Latin Medus and from the Greek Medos: native
or inhabitant of Media, a well-known country of Asia. A name
evocative of the sundial, an instrument which used to mark the
passage of time and share out manâs labour.
Castello Monaci is located in Puglia's Salento region, on the "heel of the boot" that is Italy. In this emerging region, Castello Monaci is a benchmark producer crafting wines with the unique characters of Southern Italy's indigenous grapes Primitivo, Negroamaro and Malvasia Nera. The region of Puglia is drenched in the most intense sunlight in all of Italy tempered only by nearby Mediterranean Sea that provides constant, cooling maritime winds. This unique climate helps produce exquisitely balanced fruit. The Castello Monaci estate is housed in a 16th century castle with medieval foundations once run by Basiliani monks who maintained a long winemaking tradition. Lina Memmo, whose family has owned the estate since the 19th century, and husband Vitantonio Seracca, currently own the property.
The cellars are surrounded by over 350 acres of vineyards with additional acreage planted to experimental plantings of white varietals near Brindisi on the Adriatic Sea. Each vineyard parcel is cultivated, harvested and vinified separately in small tanks. These are wines disegnati dal sole, or âcrafted by the sun.â
