Wine Advocate 89 points - The 2008 Primitivo Salento Artas is impressive for its power and concentration. Unfortunately the French oak covers most of the varietal personality here, which is a shame as the underlying material here was quite strong. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018. (Jun 2011)

Artas the Messapian chief who, in 413 B.C., in accordance with an ancient treaty of friendship between Messapia and Athens, provided 150 javelin throwers to support the Athenian expedition to Sicily in the so-called Peloponnesian war between Sparta and Athens. The Messapians, a warlike and independent people, inhabited the southern part of Puglia, and were known as Salentini. It is thought that this name signifies “the people between the seas” because they were based in the south of Puglia between the Adriatic and Ionian seas.
Producer
Located near the bucolic town of Salice Salentino in Puglia, the "heel” of "Italy’s boot” which is an idyllic spot situated between the Adriatic and Tirrenean seas, is the new property of Castello Monaci. The eponymous castle is nestled amid groves of centuries old olive trees, and a long road slices straight through the estate’s 150 hectares of vineyards, forming what Monaci terms a meridian, an imaginary line which is the highest point in the sky reached by the sun.
