NEgroamaro+PRImitivo+CAbernet Sauvignon = 'Neprica', a fresh, upbeat, ever-so-drinkable cooperation of pure boysenberry, plum and cherry fruit imbued with floral nuances and aged in stainless for about 8 months, with some sleepovers in older oak barrels to add a smidgen of spice to the mouthwatering, unbeatable blend. Impossible to resist this food friendly bottle of red ( try baked polenta with Italian sausages) that will be empty before you know it. Perhaps that's why it's priced to disapppear!

The 2013 vintage is somehow even better than the last! An incredible value from Puglia, Neprica is a crowd pleaser with weight and complexity, thanks to its blend of dark berry Negroamaro, grippy Cabernet Sauvignon, and rich Primitivo. Deliciously fruit forward without being cloying or simple, and the price is right - enjoy immediately!

I find most intriguing when french grapes grown in Italy acquire that "Non so che cosa"that makes it uniquely Italian. The Neprica has just that with its Cabernet Sauvignon. Very nice and approachable wine that is ready to go on any party, dinner, picnic and anywhere else you might want to take it along.

It is hard to believe that a wine at this price point can carry the quality level it does, but the Antinori family has centuries of experience to back them. This wine is a blend of NE (Negroamaro) PRI (Primitivo) and CA (Cabernet), hence the Neprica name. Negroamaro is Puglia's most important grape and provides the size and frame and structure of the wine, the Primitivo gives it a rich dose of fruit and the Cabernet adds backbone and complexity, all told for the price this wine can't be beat!
Drink from 2016 to 2018

Tuesday night pizza wine anyone!! This red delivers with great red ripe wild berries, floral and herbal spice. A lovely balance of acidity and tannins. With summer right around the corner. It is amazing with any grilled meats too! Sure to please at any event. From pizza and a movie on the couch or outdoor event with all your great summertime eats!

Super tasty Southern Italian red. Medium bodied, good fruit, a little bit of earth, a little spice, a little price. A no brainer.

This Tormaresca Neprica Puglia blend is quite the value! This blend of Negroamaro (Ne), Primitivo (Pri), and Cabernet Sauvignon (Ca) brings together lovely cherry and currant fruit, perfect richness, and a bit of cola and chocolate. It truly fits the "daily drinker" category!

Amazing palate full of juicy sun-baked red fruit with hints of spice and sweet leather. Perfect for an evening of family-style pasta or pizza.

- 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.
