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.

This Chardonnay , light yellow with golden highlights, has aromas of exotic fruit, citrus and pineapple. It is an elegant wine with pear flavors and a delicate minerality with bright acidity that pairs well with a wide variety of foods. Tomaresca estate vineyards are located in the Southern Italian province of Puglia, which is situated in the "heel" of the Italian boot. It is called Tormarsca (tower by the sea) for teh many towers that line the coast of this beautiful region along the Adriatic sea.
