Antinori Tormaresca Bocca Lupo 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

"...a more refined, domesticated expression of Aglianico. The 2007 isn’t quite as nuanced as the 2008, but it makes up for that with superb textural finesse and elegance. Sweet, silky tannins frame layers of dark red fruit in this fleshy, supple wine. Varietal notes appear on the close in this beautifully balanced, sleek Aglianico. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2017...91." WA #195

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.

Intensives Purpurrot mit violetten Reflexen. Konzentrierte Fruchtaromatik in der Nase mit Noten von Brombeeren, Kirschen und einem Hauch von Vanille. Im Gaumen sehr kompakt und muskulös, modern, mit viel Schmelz, Pflaumen, etwas Schokolade und feine Würze im langen Finale.
