Tormaresca is the only winemaker with vineyards in both of Pugliaâ€™s elite viticultural regions. A close relative of Zinfandel, the Primitivo grape was cloned and formulated by Benedictine monks in search of an early ripening varietal. Apulia is now the most prominent Primitivo growing region in the world. Treated to a term of age in seasoned oak, it achieves a richly structured wine of engaging perfumes, maraschino notes and bright red fruit characters, the raunchiness of tobacco leaf and savoury sweetness of Apulian herb. A highly appealing Mediterranean style with extraordinary food matching qualities.
