Pèppoli was first marketed in 1988 with the initial vintage, the 1985, and represents a wine which is both complex and well structured but with much fruit and aromatic fragrance as well. It is produced at the estate of the same name, and since the year 2013 a part of the crop is fermented at the Antinori Chianti Classico cellars at Bargino.
Ruby red in color with purple highlights, the wine shows intensely fruity notes of cherries and red currants on the nose which fuse very well with the typical sensations of violets which characterize Chianti Classico. Very delicate and quite well integrated the smoky sensations created by the oak aging.
The palate is savory with a tasty vein of acidity together with silky and polished tannins.
Straw yellow colour flecked with green; typical of the grape. Forward aromas of apple and citrus, especially grapefruit, are accompanied by subtle bitter notes of hawthorn, acacia and elderberry blossoms. Long and intense.
Considered one of the best white wines for fish, this wine will partner beautifully with either sea food or with poultry and rabbit. Best enjoyed 3-4 years from harvest.
Named after the grapes in the blend (Negroamaro, Primitivo and Cabernet Sauvignon), this easygoing, savory wine doles out juicy blackberry, black currant, black cherry and a hint of licorice with soft, round tannins.
An intense ruby red in color, Villa Antinori 2013 shows aromas of red fruit well amalgamated with spicy and balsamic notes. The palate is ample and enveloping and features firm and supple tannins. The wine is very persistent and the aftertaste brings back the notes first felt on the nose.
This Chardonnay is Tormaresca’s signature label from its namesake estate. Being a symbol of Apulia’s intrinsic nature, with its high-quality standards, is a source of pride for Tormaresca and its close connection to the territory is made evident through the etymology of the name itself. “Tormaresca” is a creative name that evokes the 580 historical fortified towers built to defend the Apulian coastline from pirates that for centuries threatened the local populations. These same invaders proved to be sources of important cultural contributions that left their mark in the area.
Bright, fruity, medium-bodied Chardonnay showing the purity and richness of Puglian fruit.
