PRODUCTION
The grapes were harvested just overripe during the first week of September. After the pressing, the maceration, managed with soft pumping over and de-aging, was continued for 15 days
in stainless steel tanks. During this phase, the wines completed the alcoholic fermentation at a temperature not exceeding 26 ° C. After the racking, the wine made the
malolactic fermentation directly in French and Hungarian oak barrels, where it has been raised for about 10 months. A further period of 8 months of aging followed in bottle before being placed
on the market.


The PRIMITIVE OF THE FUTURE
Our pure primitive is linked both to the rustic and rural scenarios where it was born, and to the fertility and wealth that it has represented for the families of the area so much that in times not too
much
far away he was even brought as a dowry by young brides. "Torcicoda" recalls, therefore, on the one hand one of the tools used by the factors for the care of horses, on the other hand
the sinuosity and nature
luxuriant of the branches and leaves of this vine, also called "of the three harvests" for its fertility.

Tormaresca

Passion, courage and trust in Puglia's enormous quality potential are the elements that pushed the Antinori to invest in this region, in particular in the areas of Castel del Monte and Salento. The basic idea on which Tormaresca's production philosophy is based is to produce great wines from native Apulian vines. Most of the vineyards are cultivated with traditional grapes, some of which date back to the Magna Graecia civilization, and strongly rooted in the territory: Primitivo, Negroamaro, Fiano Pugliese, Aglianico, Nero di Troia and Moscato Reale The Tormaresca company consists of two estates located in the areas most suited to the wine-growing tradition of the region: Tenuta Bocca di Lupo in the DOC Castel del Monte, immersed in the wild Bari murgia and Masseria Maime in the Salento area, the beating heart of Puglia. The Bocca di Lupo estate is located in the countryside of Minervino Murge, in the Castel del Monte DOC area, about 250 m above sea level. The proximity of the ancient Vulture volcano, the climate characterized by a significant temperature range between day and night and the composition of the land have a significant influence on the vineyards. The varieties present are Aglianico, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Apulian Fiano, Nero di Troia and Moscato Reale. Masseria Maime is located in one of the most beautiful areas of upper Salento. The company, which covers an area of ​​about 500 hectares of which 350 are planted with vines and 85 with olive groves, develops along the Adriatic coast, thus creating a unique landscape of vineyards that arise between woods and pine forests and are lost on sight an eye until it merges with the sea.
