About This Wine...
Negroamaro,100% A selection of grapes cultivated in the vineyards from the Maime estate in San Pietro Vernotico
On the nose cherries and jam along with light notes of violets and anisette. Soft and elegant, tannins of much finesse sustained by a pleasurable freshness and crispness.
The grapes were fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The phase of skin contact, conducted at temperatures held to a maximum of 26° centigrade, lasted from eight to ten days. The malolactic fermentation was completed by the beginning of winter. A period of further aging then followed, first in stainless steel for approximately eight months
and in bottle for an additional four months.
Recommended serving temperature 16-18 ° centigrade
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.
