Winemaker Notes

Ruby red in color with aromas of Marasca cherry, red fruit and notes of sweet spices such as licorice, vanilla and clove. An intensely flavored wine that is full-bodied yet soft upfront, with velvety tannins accompanied by a pleasant acidity.

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2007 Aglianico Castel del Monte Bocca di Lupo shows a more refined, domesticated expression of Aglianico. The 2007 isn’t quite as nuanced as the 2008, but it makes up for that with superb textural finesse and elegance. Sweet, silky tannins frame layers of dark red fruit in this fleshy, supple wine. Varietal notes appear on the close in this beautifully balanced, sleek Aglianico. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2017.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
The dusty tannins are well-knit, with layers of ground spice, grilled herb, black olive and dried currant. This subtle red is more about integration and balance than aggressive flavor. Drink now through 2019.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
This vintage of Bocca di Lupo shows balance and sophistication both in terms of its aromatic intensity and overall delivery of fresh fruit and spice. Flavors of dark plum, blackberry, black espresso and hickory smoke appear on the very rich and dense finish.

Tormaresca Bocca di Lupo Estate Winery Image

A wonderful joining of classic winemaking and modern viticultural techniques, these exceptional wines are crafted from 100% estate grown fruit, a rarity among Puglian wines. Tormaresca is the only producer with vineyards in both of Puglia’s two elite winegrowing sub-regions: Salento and Castel del Monte DOC.


The Tormaresca estate is composed of two properties. Bocca di Lupo is located in the Castel del Monte DOC of northern Puglia. It offers an ideal growing environment for Chardonnay, Aglianico and Cabernet Sauvignon. Masseria Maime is located on the Salento peninsula in Southern Puglia. Its vineyards extend over half a mile along the Adriatic coast and are planted with Negroamaro, Primitivo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.

Well-suited to the production of concentrated, fruity and spicy red varieties, Puglia is one of Italy’s warmest, most southerly regions. Its entire eastern side is one long coastline bordering the Adriatic Sea. About half way down, the region becomes the Salento Peninsula. This peninsula, bordered by water on three sides, receives moist, nighttime, sea breezes that bring a welcome cooling effect to the region, where little rain creates a challenging environment for its vines. In fact, the region is named for the Italian expression, “a pluvia,” meaning “lack of rain.”

Puglia’s Mediterranean climate and iron-rich, calcareous soils support the indigenous Primitivo, Negroamaro and Nero di Troia. Primitivo produces an inky, spicy, brambly and ripe red wine whose best expression comes from Manduria. Nero di Troia produces tannic, rustic reds from Castel del Monte DOC while Negroamaro, typically blended with Malvasia nera, plays a large part in may blends made throughout the peninsula.

Puglia produces a small amount of white wines as well, predominantly made of the fruity, Trebbiano Toscano, or light, Bombino bianco grapes.

Making its home in the mountainous southern Italy, Aglianico is a bold red variety that is late to ripen and often spends until November on the vine. It thrives in Campania as the exclusive variety in the age-worthy red wine called Taurasi. Aglianico also has great success in the volcanic soils of Basilicata where it makes the robust, Aglianico del Vulture. Somm Secret—The name “Aglianico” bears striking resemblance to Ellenico, the Italian word for "Greek," but no evidence shows it has Greek ancestry. However, it first appeared in Italy around an ancient Greek colony located in present-day Avellino, Campania.
