Tormaresca Primitivo 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Discover Primitivo, which shares a heritage with Zinfandel. Primitivo is a long time favorite of Italians vacationing in Southern Italy enjoying the beautiful beaches, fresh seafood and late nights in ancient seaside towns. Flavors: Rich black cherry and blueberry with a hint of licorice. Well-structured with soft tannins on the long, lingering finish. Pair with traditional Puglian dishes such as roasted lamb or pasta with tomato sauce.

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.
