Producer

Part of the World Renowned Antinori Wine Esates, Tormaresca is named for the region’s ancient seaside towers overlooking the Adriatic Sea. Tormaresca adds a fresh dimension to Italy’s world-class wine landscape. Indeed, it is the only producer with vineyards in both of Puglia’s elite winegrowing regions.

The Antinori family started investing in the area 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.

The Bocca di Lupo estate is located within the Castel del Monte DOC, while the Masseria Maìme estate is in the Salento area, the pulsing heart of this vibrant winemaking region. Tormaresca leads Puglia’s modern renaissance by combining classic winemaking with the latest viticulture techniques to create exceptional wines just waiting to be discovered. All Tormaresca wines are crafted with 100% estate-grown fruit.

Bocca di Lupo occupies 250 acres of chalky soil at an elevation of 800 feet above sea level in Murgia, near the volcano Vulture. Blessed with abundant sunshine and warm temperatures, the vineyard’s Chardonnay, Aglianico, Fiano, Moscato, and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes flourish, producing wines with fresh, vibrant, and elegant flavors.

Masseria Maìme estate’s 625 acres extend over half a mile along the Adriatic coast, providing an ideal growing environment for Negroamaro, Primitivo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, and Fiano. Together, these estates enable Tormaresca to cultivate both exceptional native and international varietals in the heart of Puglia.

Masseria Maìme is located in one of the most beautiful areas of Upper Salento not too far from the town of San Pietro Vernotico in the province of Brindisi. The estate extends along the coastline forming a unique countryside of vineyards that lies between woodlands and pine forests stretching out as far as the eye can see until blending into the sea.

The most prevalent grape varieties grown here areNegroamaro, Primitivo, Chardonnay andCabernet Sauvignon.Calafuria is produced from vineyards that extend alongthe Adriatic coastline for over a kilometer.

Its name comes from one of the over 700 bays on the Apulian peninsula. The region boastsa long tradition in the production of rosé wines made from Negroamaro, a variety that best expresses its full potential near the sea. Calafuria is a Rosé that is delicate, pleasantly fruity, savory and ample, reflecting the aromas and colours of its home territory, Salento.
