The Antinori family has been producing wine for more than 25 generations, exactly since 1385. The Tormaresca estate, owned by the Antinori family, excellently represents the rich tradition of Apulian rosé wines. The region has always been renowned for the production of these refined wines, thanks to the use of the native Negroamaro vine, which lends itself particularly well to this type of winemaking. The name Tormaresca takes inspiration from a bay located along the Adriatic coast of Salento, representing not only the origin of the wine, but also its close connection with the sea.
Produced with a short maceration on the skins of the red berried grapes to give the typical rosé color and the characteristic aromas. Aging in steel, then 4 months in the bottle.
Pale pink color with bright reflections. The scent is subtle and elegant, with citrus notes, pink grapefruit, hints of red currant, raspberry, pomegranate and delicate floral nuances, accompanied by slight hints of aromatic herbs typical of the Mediterranean scrub and a light touch of iodine. When tasted, there is a softness thanks to the presence of ripe and satisfying fruit, balanced by a pleasant freshness and a pleasant sapidity in the finish.
Perfect as an aperitif on a warm summer or spring evening, if you want to combine it, it goes perfectly with prawns, scampi, or cod in tomato sauce.
