Tormaresca Torcicoda Primitivo Salento 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

The availability of this product is limited and subject to change.<br/><br/>Wine Advocate Review<br/>Rated 90<br/>The 2013 Primitivo Torcicoda is a great value option that offers an authentic taste of Puglian winemaking. The wine boasts the Antinori family's signature touch with bold layers of spice and dark fruit that contrast each other in seamless fashion. The slightly cooler vintage offers a pretty view onto the Primitivo grape and its aromas of blackberry preserves and spicy tobacco. Smooth tannins and soft consistency make for a fitting close.<br/><br/>Wine Tasting Notes<br/>Ruby red in color with characteristic varietal aromas of red fruits, complemented by notes of vanilla and strong, licorice spices. The palate is soft and silky, with good body and acidity. Rich, mouth-coating tannins are accentuated by a long, lasting finish.

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.
