Producer: Tormaresca is made up of two estates in different areas of Puglia: in
the central, inland region of Castel del Monte they have Aglianico,
and in the Salento peninsula of the extreme south-east, Primitivo and
Negroamaro. Cabernet and Chardonnay are grown in both zones, giving
the winemaker a broad palette from which to blend the very consistent
entry-level wines. Antinori only invested here in 1998, yet since then
Tormaresca has become a flagship of Puglian production

Vineyard: These Negroamaro grapes were grown on the 500-hectare Masseria
Maìme estate at San Pietro Vernotico, and harvested in the first week of

Winery: After a manual selection, the grapes were gently destemmed and
pressed. The must was settled at 10ºC and then fermented at 16ºC in
stainless steel tanks. The finished wine rested briefly in tank before being
bottled early to maximise freshness.

Taste: Peach petal pink in colour, this wine shows intense yet delicate fragrances
of pink grapefruit, peaches and violets. The flavor is fresh and balanced
with savoury notes and excellent aromatic persistence.
