Tormaresca Neprica Puglia 2013

External Review by We Speak Wine:

VINTAGE • The 2013 vintage was characterized by a heterogeneous vegetative cycle with normal temperatures and rainfall in the spring. • Higher temperatures in summer favored excellent growth and cluster development and the climate remained warm and dry. • The vines adapted to the lack of rain during the summer with a balance of vineyard maintenance and cultivation techniques, preventing over-exposure of the grapes to the sun. • The grapes were picked at the end of August, typically in the first hours of the day to preserve all the aromas and characteristics of the varietal. TASTING NOTES: Brilliantly ruby red in color the wine has aromas of fresh red fruit, like plums and cherries as well as floral notes of rose and violet. The 2013 vintage has excellent structure and is supple on the palate with an elegant return to the red fruit notes on the long finish. BLEND: 40% Negroamaro 30% Primitivo 30% Cabernet Sauvignon ALCOHOL: 13.5% Vol.

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.
