SKU #1262453 Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This blend of 50% Negroamaro, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Primitivo offers a bright, zesty nose of mixed berries alongside lifted pepper and graphite accents. There's a tense, grippy feel to the tannins, with bright shots of acidity propelling the crunchy berry flavors along. A light cherry pit note extends on the finish. *Best Buy* Inner quote mark (11/2019)

Wine Spectator

K&L Notes

Antinori moves south! Piero Antinori has been one of the leaders of the Italian wine industry for decades. He was involved in starting the Super Tuscan movement, developing coastal Tuscany and now he has turned his focus to Puglia. Antinori however sees the potential for quality at an exceptional price and with their incredible base of knowledge and skilled winemakers they have crafted some unique and delicious wines. 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.

I just opened this for our staff tasting recently and this little "Puglia blend" stopped the show, with lots of oohs and ahhs from my coworkers. This wine has lots of bang for the buck. This wine is a blend of 40% Negroamaro, 30% Primitivo & 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, medium-bodied with dark fruit, good acidity and a really long finish. Two THUMBS up !!! Guido
