Copertino, Eloquenzia, Masseria Monaci, 2004
Made by Azienda Monaci, a family run winery in Copertino, Eloquenzia is one in a portfolio of nine wines and made entirely from the local grape, Negroamaro. Thus far, this is the best in the case and a wine I can thoroughly recommend for its both its taste and its price (£6.50).
- Appearance: Deep ruby red
- Nose: Excellent. A heady mix of herbs & smoke. Very Chateauneuf/ mourvedre in style
- Palette: Juicy & crunchy fruit. Thick with dark & bitter black cherry & glycerine - like a mature Rhone. Very long finish.
- Conclusion: A wine of real distinnction & expression. Lives up to it's eloquent name. Definitely reorder. 2.5* 8/10
