Masseria Maime Tormaresca 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2006 Negroamaro Maime is more powerful and burly than the 2007. Cured meats, smoke, licorice, earthiness and wild cherries are some of the notes that emerge from this distinctive red. Elements of rusticity run through the wine. The bold, extroverted personality may not be for everyone, but there is no shortage of personality and sheer character here. Firm tannins build on the virile finish...90" WA 6/10

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.
