Buy Tormaresca Salento Primitivo Torcicoda
Wine Advocate 88 points - The 2010 Primitivo Salento Torcicoda is endowed with notable depth and power. Black cherries, earthiness, tar, licorice and smoke are woven together in a rich, layered fabric. The 2010 shows the more virile side of Primitivo in its structure, while the aromatics that can be so compelling in this cousin of Zinfandel are less evident. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2015. ” (Feb 2013)

Producer
Viticulture in Puglia is history and at the same time innovation. Cultivation of wines started thousands of years ago, at the time of ”Magna Grecia”, to which the Greek origins of many names of Apulian grape varieties attests. Tradition continues through the presence of native varieties such as Negroamaro, Aglianico and Primitivo, both true expressions of a strong and extra-ordinary vital territory. The production of high quality wines is related to recent steps towards innovation and creativity: substantial changes have been obtained through the use of modern viticulture techniques and the introduction of non native grape varieties (i.e. Chardonnay and Cabernet) that express themselves in this ”terroir” in a completely unique way. Tormaresca is the expression of the above two souls. Character, personality and top quality are the characteristics that Puglia transmits to the native grape varieties. For this reason the Antinori family gave birth to Tormaresca in 1998 when they started investing in Puglia, considering it one of the most promising regions in Italy for the production of high quality wines with a strong territorial identity.
