Ripe berry notes, cassis, molasses and cola serve as a preface for the thick texture and smooth density that this wine delivers to the palate.The wine is thick and succulent with smooth tannins and great length: excellent quality for this very low price. A best Buy. Outstanding. Score 90."
THE WINE ENTHUSIAST
Tormaresca is the fruit of the Antinori family's investment in the Puglian region since July 1998. The Tormaresca estate is composed of two properties: one in Minervino Murge (Bari) a 100 hectare (247 acre) estate located in the Castel del Monte D.O.C. region, 40 miles from the Adriatic Sea; the other property is a 500 hectare (1,235 acre) estate near San Pietro Vernotico (Brindisi), closer to the sea in the Salento DOC region.
The new cellar is located at Minervino Murge while the commercial and administrative offices are in the city of Bari, halfway between the two properties.
