Tasting Notes

Red fruits, black cherry and notes of violets on the nose.

Background

History

Tormaresca is made up of two estates in different areas of Puglia: in the central, inland region of Castel del Monte they have Aglianico, and in the Salento peninsula of the extreme south-east, Primitivo and Negroamaro. Cabernet and Chardonnay are grown in both zones, giving the winemaker a broad palette from which to blend the very consistent entry-level wines. Antinori only invested here in 1998, yet in that time Tormaresca has become a flagship of Puglian production

Regional info

The Bocca di Lupo estate is planted on poor, chalky soil at 250 metres above sea level; the vines are trained using the double Guyot method, and the Cabernet is typically ready to harvest from early September. The Masseria Maìme estate to the south runs along the coast and features a mixture of bush vines and newer cordon-trained plantings. Negroamaro is the last variety to be picked here, normally in mid-Septembe
