This is a good blend, Negroamaro, Primitivo, Cabernet, hence the name Ne-Pri-Ca, that has aromas of berries and spice with flavors of dark berries, chocolate with a nice balance. I would buy again and probably decant this one to see if it opens up.

Not big, but definitely earthy(clay to me), full red fruit and a slight hint of licorice & molasses. This wine put me right back to Italy. I closed my eyes and savoured the last sip wishing I was there. I agree for the $10 price, it's a great value.

This wine was on the top 100 Best Buys of 2008 list put out by Wine Enthusiast. The aroma was a little closed off. Medium to heavy bodied with a thick texture. Hints of spice, molasses, and cola with a background of smooth tannins that lasted long into the finish. A little bit hot but not unbearable. Very good wine for the price if you can find it.

Woody, berry, and a bit earthy scents. Dry start, rather thin mid., tangy, with a nice full, warm finish.

Hmm, personally, I cant smell fruit, to me it is a bit sour and alcoholic smelling, definately tastes earthy, leathery with a finish that is a little musty to me. I find it drinkable but not really savoring this one. Waited a long time to try this one, I'm disappointed.

Tormaresca Neprica - Rosso Puglia IGT 2007: Diese Cuveé aus Negroamaro, Primitivo und Cabernet präsentiert sich mit einer erstaunlich satten, dunkelpurpurroten Farbe und einem samtigen, vollmundigen Geschmack von Waldbeeren und Lakritze. Dieser Wein ist ein idealer Begleiter zu Fischgerichten. Er sollte 1 Stunde vor dem Genuß belüftet werden.Weingut:  TormarescaRegion:    ApulienRebsorten: 25% Cabernet, 15% Primitivo, 70% NegroamaroInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt:    13 Vol.%Lagerfähigkeit: 5 - 7 Jahre ab JahrgangEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16-18°C Suche nach Rebsorten > Rote Rebsorten > Cabernet Sauvignon

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

Wine Enthusiast ReviewRated 90 BEST BUYYou 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 Tasting NotesA red blend of two local grape varieties, negroamaro ( 40%) and primitivo (30%), and one international grape, cabernet sauvignon (35%), it offers dark fruit flavors enhanced by echoes reminiscent of black licorice and savory spice. Its tannins provide structure without interfering with pleasure, so the wine feels voluptuous.

Winemaker's Notes:

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 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. The wine itself is characterised by red fruits, black cherry and blackcurrant 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.
