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 Masseria Maìme estate runs along the Adriatic coast, with vineyards set in between woods and pine forests. The grapes for Torcicoda come from older Primitivo vineyards at the estate.

Winery

Following pressing of the grapes and fermentation, there was a fifteenday maceration period in stainless steel tanks. During this time, the must completed alcoholic fermentation at temperatures of up to 27°C. After pressing and maceration, the wine completed malolactic fermentation in French and Hungarian barriques where it was aged for ten months.
