Winemaker Notes

Intense ruby red in color, the 2011 Trentangeli has intense aromas of red fruit, like cherry, licorice and spice. On the palate, it is warm and rich with excellent structure and persistence in the finish.

Grape Composition: 70% Aglianico, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon,10% Syrah

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Made with organic fruit, the 2012 Castel del Monte Trentangeli is a "super Puglian" blend of 70% Aglianico, 20% Cabernet and 10% Syrah. This is a persuasive and compelling wine with pretty tones of wet earth and terra-cotta followed by opulent ripe fruit, spice, bacon fat, blackberry preserves, candied plum, rum cake and Indian spice. The wine exhibits an international slant with pretty oak layers that are fitting and well integrated. I recommend it enthusiastically, especially for near-term drinking. Rating: 91(+) Points.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
A pure beam of ripe black cherry flavor runs through this fresh, well-balanced red, layered with hints of melted licorice, graphite and sweet smoke. Supple tannins lend some grip to the lightly spiced finish. Aglianico, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Drink now through 2021.

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.

Beyond the usual suspects, there are hundreds of red grape varieties grown throughout the world. Some are indigenous specialties capable of producing excellent single varietal wines, while others are better suited for use as blending grapes. Each has its own distinct viticultural characteristics, as well as aroma and flavor profiles, offering much to be discovered by the curious wine lover. In particular, Portugal and Italy are known for having a multitude of unique varieties but they can really be found in any region.
