2009 Tormaresca "Neprica" Puglia

SKU #1070298

90 points and a Best Buy from the Wine Enthusiast: "Neprica is an awesome blend of Negroamaro, Primitivo and Cabernet Sauvignon from southern Italy that offers an unbeatable price versus quality ratio. This rising star of Puglia would pair with meats, pasta or aged cheese and offers clean aromas of ripe fruit, spice and leather." According to Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Neprica is a fresh, floral red made in a juicy style best suited to near-term drinking. Sweet red berries, dried flowers, herbs and tobacco linger on the vinous finish. The blend is Negroamaro, Primitivo and Cabernet Sauvignon. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2013." According to Wine & Spirits: "A blend of negroamaro, primitivo and cabernet, this is a lean wine with black raspberry flavors and silken tannin. Its peppery red fruit has a direct appeal, improving with air as it will in a decanter. For grilled porcini." Antinori moves south! The Tormaresca "Neprica" is made from Negroamaro, Primitivo and Cabernet Sauvignon. Negroamaro and Primitivo by themselves sometimes lack balance or their flavors are too forceful yet with the addition of the Cabernet Sauvignon to the mix, well...Wow! Rich, complex, with loads of fruit yet balanced with a veil of structure that makes it eminently drinkable! (Greg St.Clair K&L's Italian buyer)

Pizza wine get's throw around a lot. I will add my pizza wine to the list! Tormaresca, from the heel of the boot. So we are talking down south. With the warmer climate and more pronounced fruit. It stands up to any pizza you put in it's path. At $7.99 you could have pizza every night! What a wonderful world!

An unusual blend with a great balance and taste. Have already drained several bottles and looking forward to more. Given its modest price and quality, this is a wonderful "house" wine and a real steal.

Country:

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
