2016 Chardonnay, Tormaresca, Puglia, Italy, Puglia IGT
The viticulture in Puglia started thousands of years ago. This tradition continues through the presence of native varieties such as Negroamaro, Aglianico and Primitivo, both true expressions of a strong and extra-ordinary territory.
The production of high quality wines is related to recent steps towards innovation and creativity: substantial changes have been obtained through the use of modern viticulture techniques and the introduction of non-native grape varieties (i.e. Chardonnay and Cabernet) that express themselves in this "terroir" in a completely unique way.
The Antinori family gave birth to Tormaresca in 1998 when they started investing in Puglia, considering it one of the most promising regions in Italy for the production of high quality wines with a strong territorial identity.
