The Antinori family started investing in the Puglia in 1998 as they believed that this is one of the most promising regions in Italy for producing top quality wines with a strong territorial identity.
Tormaresca has two estates located in the best-known areas for the production of high quality wines: The Bocca di Lupo Estate in the heart of the Castel Del Monte DOC appellation; and Masseria Maime in one of the most beautiful areas of Upper Salento.
This un-oaked Chardonnay has a semi-aromatic nose of orange blossom and jasmine flower, with mandarine, citrus fruit and ripe stone fruit. On the palate it is dry, crisp and refreshing with a dusty / steely minerality. Ripe stone fruit mingles with red apples & pear. The wine has medium plus acidity, which is preserved when grapes are harvested fairly early end of August. There is a lees texture too. This is pure, mouth-watering, straight forward, precise.
