Masseria Maime 2006 Negroamaro IGT Salento,Tormaresca
Antinori established Tormaresca in the Puglia region of southern Italy in 1998 and from the estate's two vineyards, Bocca di Lupo and Masseria Maime, they've been producing outstanding wines for more than a decade. The Masseria Maėme estate, located in Puglia, is an example of both innovation and tradition: old growth systems typical in Puglia, such as the alberello (vines trained to grow to resemble a small bush) and new vineyards grown in trellised rows. The mild climate, due to the vineyards’ proximity to the coast, and the poor, rocky soil are ideal for the native Nergoamaro grapes. Grapes were harvested slightly overripe to achieve the optimal level of phenolic maturity. The maceration lasted 15-18 days in stainless steel tanks. The wine was drained directly into French and Hungarian oak barriques where it was aged for 12 months. Extended bottle age has added to the complexity and the velvety softness of this wine. Wine & Spirits Magazine scored it 92 points saying "Like the last sip of espresso before a Neapolitan shoot out, this wine is all umami complexity: Tar, black pepper and fig combine in rich, mature flavors of dried red fruit that leave your mouth feeling cool and refreshed. Pour it with grilled pork." and the Wine Advocate scored it 90 saying "The 2006 Negroamaro Maime is more powerful and burly than the 2007. Cured meats, smoke, licorice, earthiness and wild cherries are some of the notes that emerge from this distinctive red. Elements of rusticity run through the wine. The bold, extroverted personality may not be for everyone, but there is no shortage of personality and sheer character here. Firm tannins build on the virile finish."
