Tormaresca Negroamaro Salento IGT Masseria Maìme 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Enthusiast Review Rated 90 I'm a fan of Antinori's Puglia estate and the work that enologist Renzo Cotarella does with the region's native varieties. These wines deliver power and aromatic intensity without losing their delicate balance between fruit and tobacco. The wine also shows a nice evolution in the glass with rose petal and vanilla not far behind. Drink now.

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.

The 2001 Masseria Maime, produced from a selection of the best Negro Amaro grapes, boasts powerful aromas of plums and blackberries, tar, and hung game, much flavor concentration and depth, ripe fruit, and a slight graininess of tannins and texture which suggest that waiting a bit for this wine would be a good policy. Drink: 2006-2015.

Antinorirsquo;s property in Apulia produces this robust and extracted red made from the Negroamaro grape. Deep ruby red in color, the wine is quite complex, with flavors and aromas of smoked red and black fruits, prunes, leather and roasted coffee.

Dark red. Aromas of dark cherry, plum and tomato salsa pick up sweetness with air. Classically structured, authoritatively flavored wine with layers of dark fruits, licorice and tobacco, plus the negroamaro-typical note of shoe polish. Finishes spicy but without quite enough length to merit an outstanding rating.

This is a concentrated, wood-fermented Negroamaro that shares many characteristics of a fine Cabernet Sauvignon. It has an inky, thick consistency and delivers notes of exotic spice, herbs and ripe red berries. The structure is firm with good dimension and toasted notes shine over the long finish.
