Tormaresca 2013 Torcicoda, Primitivo, IGT Salento
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. They use grapes indigenous to Southern Italy, like this marvelous Primitivo as well as blending international varietals. The Antinori team led by Renzo Cotarella, has proven to be very adept at preserving ancient traditions while also applying the most modern winemaking techniques. This 2013 is 100% Primitivo, a close relative to Zinfandel. The grapes were harvested slightly over-ripe, after the crushing, the maceration extended for 15 days in stainless-steel tanks. After the racking the wine completed the malolactic fermentation in French and Hungarian oak barriques where it was aged for 10 months. The Wine Spectator said A hint of violet gives this a floral overtone, with finely meshed flavors of ripe black cherry, minerally earth, star anise and fragrant grilled herb somewhat subdued by the taut frame. Needs some air or short-term cellaring to shine. Best from 2016 through 2020
