Bright yellow-gold. Explosive, fresh aromas of white peach, banana and pineapple. Juicy and flavorful, with tropical undertones adding fleshiness to the banana and green apple flavors. Finishes clean and lively, with a hint of vanilla. An excellent, uncomplicated chardonnay and Tormaresca's most improved bottling over the last five or six years.

Here's a light and easy Chardonnay with clean mineral notes backed by dried hay, sage, stone fruit and honey. The wine has good density and length and ends on a spicy, fresh note.

This winersquo;s chalky texture adds dimension to its soft lemon curd flavors. For roast chicken.

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 is planted on poor, chalky soil at 250 metres above sea level; the vines are trained using the double Guyot method, and the Chardonnay harvest typically begins in mid-August. The Masseria Maìme estate to the south runs along the coast and features a mixture of bush vines and newer cordon-trained plantings. Here Chardonnay is picked from the first half of August. The resulting wine is a bright, fruity medium-bodied Chardonnay showing the purity and richness of Puglian fruit.
