Tormaresca Bocca Di Lupo Castel del Monte DOC CONFIRM VINTAGE

Aglianico Puglia Italy
From harvests of organically grown Aglianico grapes, picked off Bocca di Lupo estate vineyards in the commune of Minervino Murge, at the very heart of Barletta-Andria-Trani province in Apulia. It was the Aglianico of Bocca di Lupo which inspired Tormaresca to invest many years in the rejuvenation of some very old vines and to preserve the timeless eloquence of a most abstruse and historically significant varietal. Aglianico was the first choice amongst ancient Greeks, an intense wine of structured tannins, solid fruit and fragrant chocolate plum perfumes.

Aglianico makes full bodied wines with firm tannins and good acidity, they evolve beautifully and are highly articulate of their provenance when grown to the splendid sun drenched terroirs of Apulia. Fruit is picked at perfect ripeness and pressed into controlled fermenters for vinification at warmer temperatures on skins for a fortnight or more at around 25°C to 27°C. Batches are regularly pumped over and punched down for optimal extraction, rack and returned maximum uptake of fruit character and suppleness of tannin. Upon completion, parcels are run off skins into a selection of 225 litres French oak barriques for a course of malolactic and fifteen months maturation, followed by a further two years bottle age.
Deep ruby red. Intense and complex, perfumes of red berry fruit and sweet spice, chocolates and tobacco, seasoned by savoury balsamic notes. A full palate, balck lozenge fruits flavours, lamb reductions and black olive, structured, solid, over a support of finely balanced tannins, elegant and harmonious, a long, lingering finish, an everlasting experience.
