Founded by the Antinori family (Tignanello, Solaia) in 1998, recognizing the region's potential as one of the most promising regions in Italy for producing top quality wines with a strong territorial identity. Named for the region’s ancient seaside towers overlooking the Adriatic Sea, Tormaresca adds a fresh dimension to Italy’s world-class wine landscape. 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.
Pure Primitivo from the Tormaresca estate, Torcicoda takes its name from the manor farm that winds through pine forests and olive groves. This variety is perfectly suited to Salento’s clay and limestone soils, and when its abundant clustering is limited by pruning, it expresses itself as rich structured wines with intense aromas and notes of red fruits, tobacco, Mediterranean vegetation, and medicinal herbs, the latter responsible for the delicately bitter aftertaste typical of the variety.
