Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2020
The 2016 vintage of Primitivo is an intense ruby red with light purple highlights. On the nose, aromas of black cherries and wild blackberries are followed by delicate hints of vanilla and licorice. The palate is ample and supple in the beginning, then balanced by an enjoyable freshness and a fruity finish and aftertaste.
Wine Spectator 90
Well-balanced and fresh, this medium-bodied red features a thread of ground spice that underscores flavors of crushed black raspberry, cherry, thyme and red licorice. Light tannins sculpt the clean-cut finish.

Tormaresca wines capture the character and essence of Puglia.
A wonderful joining of classic winemaking and modern viticultural techniques, these exceptional wines are crafted from 100% estate grown fruit, a rarity among Puglian wines. Tormaresca is the only producer with vineyards in both of Puglia's two elite winegrowing sub-regions: Salento and Castel del Monte DOC.
The Tormaresca estate is composed of two properties. Bocca di Lupo is located in the Castel del Monte DOC of northern Puglia. It offers an ideal growing environment for Chardonnay, Aglianico and Cabernet Sauvignon. Masseria Maime is located on the Salento peninsula in Southern Puglia. Its vineyards extend over half a mile along the Adriatic coast and are planted with Negroamaro, Primitivo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.
