Tormaresca Red Blend Puglia IGT Neprica 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Dunkles Rubinrot; fruchtig-würzige Nase. Schmeichelnde Duftnoten nach reifen Beeren, umgarnt von warmen Gewürzen wie Nelken und schwarzem Pfeffer; Im Gaumen weich und samtig im Auftakt. Milde, ausbalancierte Säure. Seidenglatte Tannine. Wiederum würzig wie schon in der Nase, dazu Noten von Cassiskompott. Im Abgang mittellang und weich.

Viticulture in Puglia is history and at the same time innovation. Cultivation of wines started thousands of years ago, at the time of "Magna Grecia", to which the Greek origins of many names of Apulian grape varieties attests. Tradition continues through the presence of native varieties such as Negroamaro, Aglianico and Primitivo, both true expressions of a strong and extra-ordinary vital territory. The production of high quality wines is related to recent steps towards innovation and creativity: substantial changes have been obtained through the use of modern viticulture techniques and the introduction of non native grape varieties (i.e. Chardonnay and Cabernet) that express themselves in this "terroir" in a completely unique way. Tormaresca is the expression of the above two souls. Character, personality and top quality are the characteristics that Puglia transmits to the native grape varieties. For this reason the Antinori family gave birth to Tormaresca in 1998 when they started investing in Puglia, considering it one of the most promising regions in Italy for the production of high quality wines with a strong territorial identity.

very interesting blend, I think the best pairing will be grill meat or even grill fish! I don't really know why but I wanna have a grilled sea bass with this wine... Good european-style balance in everything, try it!

Good and fruity. Leave a bit of an after taste. A little bit bubbly.

You cannot get better value than this. Ripe berry notes, cassis, molasses and cola serve as a preface for the thick texture and smooth density that this wine delivers to the palate. The wine is thick and succulent with smooth tannins and great length: excellent quality for this very low price.' -Wine Enthusiast

Round and fruity, with jammy plum, spice and light herb notes that lead to a rich finish. Negroamaro, Primitivo and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now.

From Antinori comes this incredibly delicious perpetual Best Buy. The 2010 was named by Food & Wine Magazine one of the Top 10 Best Bargain Wines in the World! "An absurd value!" Neprica is a blend of 40% Negroamaro 30% Primitivo and 30% Cabernet from Antinori’s two estates in Puglia. Of course Negroamaro is the ubiquitous native variety found in virtually ever Puglia wine including the very popular Salice Salentino. Leave it to the masters at Antinori to blend in Cabernet to give it international class and style.

Neprica is an awesome blend of Negroamaro, Primitivo and Cabernet Sauvignon from southern Italy that offers an unbeatable price versus quality ratio. This rising star of Puglia would pair with meats, pasta or aged cheese and offers clean aromas of ripe fruit, spice and leather.
