Intro to NePriCa Tormaresca –
NePriCa Tormaresca from Puglia Italy is made from Negroamaro, Primitivo and Cabernet – the principal grapes in this wine also make up the name. The wine is from Salento in Puglia in the south east of Italy and it is a delicious well -structured wine with layers of fruit and chocolatey notes.
Full tasting note and wine making –
The grapes were harvested at proper levels of ripeness and fermented separately in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks followed by malolactic fermentation. An eight month period of aging in stainless steel tanks then followed. A small part of the wine, nonetheless, aged in small oak barrels and it was then blended and bottled.
Neprica Tormaresca from Puglia has notes of fresh notes of plums and cherries under spirits, roses, spices, liquorice and chocolate. On the palate it is well-structured, soft, elegant, and with a savoury mineral character as well. The notes of red fruit return on the lengthy finish and aftertaste.
The producer –
Named for the region’s ancient seaside towers overlooking the Adriatic Sea, Tormaresca adds a fresh dimension to Italys world-class wine landscape. Indeed, it is the only producer with vineyards in both of Puglia’s elite winegrowing regions. Antinori the Chianti producer, began working in this area under the Tormaresca label in 1998 having seen the tremendous opportunities to make good wine in the Puglia region.
The Bocca di Lupo estate is located within the Castel del Monte DOC, while the Masseria Maìme estate is in the Salento area, the pulsing heart of this vibrant winemaking region. Tormaresca leads Puglia’s modern renaissance by combining classic winemaking with the latest viticulture techniques to create exceptional wines just waiting to be discovered. All Tormaresca wines are crafted with 100% estate-grown fruit.
This wine is a perfect match with sausages, hard cheese, roasted red and white meat, braise and roasted vegetables.
