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 lies 250 meters above seal level in the heart of the wild Murgia region. All 100 hectares are under vine principally with Chardonnay, Aglianico and Cabernet Sauvignon. In this region, the vineyards planted on poor, calcareous soil (optimal for quality wines) have an irrigation system to guarantee the balanced growth of the plants and perfect maturation of the grapes. This is rich, savoury stuff selected from the best plots of the estate; red and black currant fruit mingles with spicy tar notes and a firm structure to give a meaty, satisfying wine.
