TASTE
Red fruits, black cherry and notes of violets on the nose. On the palate, the spice of the Negroamaro is complemented by the juicy plum jam flavours of Primitivo, resulting in a soft and well-balanced wine.

PRODUCER
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

VINEYARD
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-September.

WINERY
The three varieties were vinified separately in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, at a maximum of 26°C. There was an eight to ten day maceration, followed by the malolactic fermentation. The wine was mostly aged in tank for about eight months, with a small amount going into older oak barrels, before blending and bottling.
