Winemaker Notes

Ruby red in color with aromas of red fruit with well-combined wood notes. Soft and flavorful with a sweet and long lasting tannic finish.

Wine Enthusiast
This is a very pretty example of Negroamaro that has been shaped by warm oak tones of vanilla and spice. It's elegant and soft and delivers loads of succulent spice notes throughout.

Tormaresca, , Italy
Tormaresca
Tormaresca is the fruit of the Antinori family's investment in the Puglian region since July 1998.

The Tormaresca estate is composed of two properties: one in Minervino Murge (Bari) a 100 hectare (247 acre) estate located in the Castel del Monte D.O.C. region, 40 miles from the Adriatic Sea; the other property is a 500 hectare (1,235 acre) estate near San Pietro Vernotico (Brindisi), closer to the sea in the Salento DOC region.

The new cellar is located at Minervino Murge while the commercial and administrative offices are in the city of Bari, halfway between the two properties.

Oakville

View all wine

Home to some of the most sought-after Cabernet Sauvignon in America, Napa Valley’s Oakville district covers the stretch of valley floor and foothills between the Vaca and Mayacamas Mountains. This AVA is home to the legendary To Kalon Vineyard as well as many powerhouse wineries including Screaming Eagle, Silver Oak, Robert Mondavi, and Opus One. The climate is generally warm and agreeable and the soil is well-drained, resulting in year after year of favorable vintages.

Cabernet here is often bottled varietally but is also popular in Bordeaux blends. Oakville wines are known for their rich texture, structured tannins, dark and brooding fruit, often with a healthy dose of new oak. These age-worthy and prestigious wines are favored by collectors throughout the world.

Bordeaux Blends

View all wine

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World, especially in California, Washington, and Australia. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and/or Petit Verdot, these are sometimes referred to in the US as “Meritage” blends. In Bordeaux itself, Cabernet Sauvignon dominates in wines from the Left Bank of the Gironde river, while the Right Bank focuses on Merlot. Often, blends from outside the region are classified as being inspired by one or the other.

In the Glass

Cabernet-based, Left-Bank-styled wines are typically more tannic and structured, while Merlot-based wines modeled after the Right Bank are softer and suppler. Cabernet Franc can add herbal notes, while Malbec and Petit Verdot contribute color and structure. Wines from Bordeaux can be bold and fruit-forward or restrained and earthy, while New World facsimiles tend to emulate the former style. In general, Bordeaux red blends can have aromas and flavors of black currant, cedar, plum, graphite, and violet, with more red fruit flavors when Merlot makes up a high proportion of the blend.

Perfect Pairings

Since Bordeaux red blends are often quite structured and tannic, they pair best with hearty, flavorful, and fatty meat dishes. Any type of steak makes for a classic pairing. Equally welcome with these wines would be beef brisket, pot roast, braised lamb, or smoked duck.

Sommelier Secret

While the region of Bordeaux is limited to a select few approved grape varieties, the New World is free to experiment. Bordeaux blends in California may include Syrah, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, or virtually any other grape deemed worthy by the winemaker. In Australia, Shiraz is a common component.
