SPECIFICATIONS

TASTING NOTES

Owned by the Marchesi Antinori family, the Tormaresca winery in Puglia is carefully managed by the Tuscan family. It is located in one of the most beautiful parts of Alto Salento. The ‘Torcicoda’ part of the name recalls both an instrument once used to groom horses and the luxurious coils of the shoots and leaves of the variety of vine. This wine is made exclusively from Primitivo grapes that are harvested over-ripe. They are destemmed, crushed, and moved into stainless steel tanks where the alcoholic fermentation process commences at a controlled temperature. Maceration takes place with gentle pump-overs and delèstage. Primitivo Torcicorda then undergoes ageing for around 18 months before being bottled and placed onto the market. In the glass, it is an intense ruby red with a slight purple hue. Notes of red fruit, black cherry, and plum dominate on the nose alongside hints of liquorice, vanilla, and tobacco. On the palate, it is soft and broad with a distinctive structure and tannin texture. It has a long finish with an aftertaste of cherries preserved in spirits, making it perfect for pairing with savoury tarts or meat-based main courses. Read more Read less
THE WINERY

Tormaresca

The Cantina Tormaresca winery is divided into two main estates, located in two of the most important wine-growing areas of Puglia. The first, Tenuta Bocca di Lupo, is located in the D.O.C. zone of Castel del Monte, in the heart of the Bari Murgia. The second, Masseria Maìme, is located in the Salento area. In both cases, the hectares are cultivated with indigenous grapes, fully respecting the unique characteristics of the land and its precious minerals. Painstaking and constant work has enabled the company to pursue an ambitious project, in full compliance with organic and sustainable viticulture: to produce Apulian wines that best represent the land of origin. To achieve this result, the Antinori family combines the oldest techniques with the most modern innovations, seeking a perfect balance between past and future, and making the most of the unique qualities of their terroir to tell their story in every glass. Name and address of producer/distributor: Tormaresca - S. Provinciale 86 Per Torre San Gennaro, 72027 San Pietro Vernotico (BR). Products from this winery should be stored in a cool, dry place away from heat sources.
