Rich dark fruit flavours give way to a lighter note of raspberries. The palate is full-bodied and well-structured, with bold, yet finely-grained tannins.

More info

The grapes come from the Masseria Maìme estate in Salento, which runs along the coast and features a mixture of bush vines and newer cordon-trained plantings.

The grapes were vinified in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, at a maximum of 28ºC. There was an eight to ten day maceration, followed by the malolactic fermentation. The wine was then aged in tank for eight months before bottling.

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.
