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.
Torcicoda Primitivo ‘The elegant Primitivo’. A modern interpretation of the Primitivo grape, this was the first Apulian wine to be included in Wine Spectator’s Top 100. This wine has strong ties to the rustic and rural countryside where it is produced. “Torcicoda” on one hand indicates an instrument that farmers once used to take care of their horses while on the other hand it represents the coiling, luxuriant nature of the shoots and leaves of its vines, also called the vine “ of three harvests” due to its abundant growth. 100% Primitivo, Torcicoda is left to age for 18 months before bottling.
