The Salento is a sub-region of the Puglia region in the South-Eastern point of Italy known as the ‘heel of the Italian boot’. The region lies between two seas, a territory of distinctive shapes and myriad forms representing nature. Fanning out around the castle and cellar, Castello Monaci’s 150-hectare vineyard is planted mainly with indigenous varieties - Primitivo, Negroamaro or Malvasia Nera. With a history dating back to 1804, the estate is at the forefront of sophisticated innovation and technology. It has a barrique cellar carved out of the solid rock that provides natural temperature insulation.

Liante or “Wind of the Levant”, the icy wind of winter and the hot one of the summer which blows strongly over much of the Adriatic and particularly in Puglia. It is the name chosen for the Salice Salentino, obtained from Negroamaro and Malvasia nera di Lecce grapes, hand harvested and, because of their different times of ripening, separately vinified. After the fermentation, part of the wine matures in French barriques while the rest develops in steel. Deep ruby-red colour, it has an intense and complex bouquet with hints of wild cherry conserve, chocolate and vanilla. Powerful, warm and balanced flavour with an elegant aftertaste of ripe fruit and spices, with a pleasant balsamic finish and slightly bitter aftertaste of green almonds.
