ÔTormaresca has hit the ball out of the park with this rich, flavorful blend of Aglianico, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah from Castel del Monte. Dark ruby red in color with intense aromas of black cherry and dark berry fruit that flesh out in the mouth revealing spicy minerality and a note of dark chocolate on the finish. Gorgeously textured with velvety tannins and a long lasting finish.Õ,Bart Hopkins Ð Italian red wine buyer,
Robert ParkerMade with organic fruit, the 2012 Castel del Monte Trentangeli is a ”super Puglian” blend of 70% Aglianico, 20% Cabernet and 10% Syrah. This is a persuasive and compelling wine with pretty tones of wet earth and terra-cotta followed by opulent ripe fruit, spice, bacon fat, blackberry preserves, candied plum, rum cake and Indian spice. The wine exhibits an international slant with pretty oak layers that are fitting and well integrated. I recommend it enthusiastically, especially for near-term drinking.
Wine EnthusiastAromas of exotic spice, incense, coconut and mature black fruit lead the nose on this full-bodied wine. The palate delivers dried blackberry, chocolate, roasted coffee bean and vanilla alongside assertive tannins.
