Chardonnay grapes, harvested at proper analytical ripeness levels, was immediately pressed in the cellars after picking. After the soft pressing, the must was chilled and held for 24 hours at a temperature of 10° Centigrade in order to assist a natural static settling of the impurities. The clarified must was fermented, utilizing selected yeasts, in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 16° Centigrade in order to fully bring out the aromatic patrimony of the grapes. The subsequent aging of the wine up until bottling took place in stainless steel.

New World wines from the Old World: first settled by the Greeks in the 8th c BC, over the centuries Puglia has been colonised by Romans, Turks, Slavs, Normans & Spaniards. Evidence of this long history is seen in the region’s ancient coastal towers
overlooking the Adriatic Sea – hence the name, Tormaresca. Acquired by Antinori in1998 as the Puglian gem of their
collection. The philosophy is to produce great wines from indigenous varietals that date back to the Magna Grecia, when all
Southern Italy was known as Enotria – the land of wine. Tormaresca leads Puglia’s modern renaissance by combining classic
winemaking with the latest viticulture techniques to create exceptional wines.
