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 in that time Tormaresca has become a flagship of Puglian production.

Vineyard: The grapes come from the Masseria Maìme estate in Salento, which runs along the coast and features a mixture of bush vines and newer cordon-trained plantings.

Winery: The grapes were vinified in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, at a maximum of 26ºC. There was an eight to ten day maceration, followed by the malolactic fermentation. The wine was then aged in tank for eight months before bottling.

Taste: Red fruits, black cherry and notes of liquorice. The palate is well-rounded, with soft, supple tannins and a pleasingly fresh finish.
