Chardonnay Tormaresca Puglia IGT 2021 - Antinori Tenuta Tormaresca

An unusual Chardonnay for a southern white, this wine from Tormaresca is appreciated above all for its freshness to which is added a pleasant intensity of aromas. It comes from grapes grown mainly in Masseria Maìme, in one of the most beautiful areas of Alto Salento, not far from the town of San Pietro Vernotico. Here the Chardonnay is harvested only when it has reached perfect technological maturity and immediately stored in the cellar. After a soft pressing, the must is cooled and kept at a temperature of 10 degrees for about 24 hours in order to obtain a natural decantation. It is then fermented with selected yeasts in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks in order to enhance the aromatic qualities of the grapes. The subsequent ageing of the wine continues in steel until the bottling stage. Thus one discovers a beautiful goblet characterised by a straw yellow colour with greenish reflections of great brilliance. The nose reveals fresh notes of orange blossom, thyme, rose and lavender. In the mouth, on the other hand, one discovers a wine of excellent freshness and minerality, with a savoury and fruity aftertaste. A wine of great balance, it is the ideal companion for the whole meal. From hors d'oeuvres to main courses, when fish is the star of the table, this is the wine that should not be missing from the fridge.

Tormaresca: great wines from indigenous Apulian grape varieties. Passion, courage and faith in the enormous qualitative potential of Apulia are the elements that drove the Antinori family to invest in this region, particularly in the areas of Castel del Monte and Salento. Most of the vineyards are planted with traditional grapes, some of which date back to the civilization of Magna Graecia, and are strongly rooted in the territory: Primitivo, Negroamaro, Fiano pugliese, Aglianico, Nero di Troia and Moscato Reale. The Tormaresca winery consists of two estates located in the areas most suited to the region's winemaking tradition: Tenuta Bocca di Lupo, in the Castel del Monte DOC area, immersed in the wild Murgia of Bari, and Masseria Maime, in the Salento area, the beating heart of Apulia.
