Viticulture in Puglia is history and at the same time innovation. Cultivation of wines started thousands of years ago, at the time of "Magna Grecia", to which the Greek origins of many names of Apulian grape varieties attests. Tradition continues through the presence of native varieties such as Negroamaro, Aglianico and Primitivo, both true expressions of a strong and extra-ordinary vital territory.
The production of high quality wines is related to recent steps towards innovation and creativity: substantial changes (i.e. Chardonnay and Cabernet) that express themselves in the "terroir" in a completely unique way.
Tormaresca is the expression of the above two souls. Character, personality and top quality are the characterustucs that Puglia trasmits to the native grape varieties. For this reason 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.
Torcicoda has been included among the best 100 wines in the world for 2020 by Wine Spectator. This is the second time this has happened in the last ten years and, as the only Apulian winery on the prestigious list, it fills us with pride to represent a region we love.
