Wine Description

(2007 Vintage) 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. The grapes come from a mixture of old bush vines and younger ones growing with the cordon training system. The wine has typical read more...varietal aromas; red fruits, light aromas of prune and notes of wood. It is soft and round on the palate. Robert Parker rated 90 points. (hide)
