Tormaresca Castel del Monte Trentangeli 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

OTormaresca has hit the ball out of the park with this rich, flavorful blend of Aglianico, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah from Castel del Monte. Dark ruby red in color with intense aromas of black cherry and dark berry fruit that flesh out in the mouth revealing spicy minerality and a note of dark chocolate on the finish. Gorgeously textured with velvety tannins and a long lasting finish.O,Bart Hopkins D Italian red wine buyer,

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.
