2020 Tormaresca Torcicoda Primitivo


Torcicoda Primitivo - The Elegant Primitivo - is a modern interpretation of the Primitivo grape.

This wine has strong ties to the rustic and rural countryside where it is produced.
“Torcicoda” on one hand indicates an instrument that farmers once used to take care of their horses while on the other hand it represents the coiling, luxuriant nature of the shoots and leaves of its vines, also called the vine “of three harvests” due to its abundant growth.

100% Primitivo, Torcicoda is left to age for 18 months before bottling.

Tasting Note: An intense ruby red colour with light violet hues. On the nose, dominant notes of red fruit, black cherries, and plums merge with spicy sensations of liquorice, vanilla, and tobacco. Its entry on the palate is soft and generous with good structure sustained by an elegant tannic texture. It closes with a long, persistent finish accented by a pleasant aftertaste of liqueur cherries. 

Origin: Salento, Italy

Alcohol: 15.5%

Blend: Primitivo

Marchesi Antinori

Antinori has become Tuscany’s - arguably Italy’s - pre-eminent wine producer, establishing an important presence in Piedmont, Umbria, Puglia and Lombardy.

The Antinori family has been producing wine in Tuscany for six centuries and exporting it for four – that’s 26 generations of uninterrupted family ownership, making them the 10th oldest company in the world still in the hands of the same family. They moved to Florence in the early 13th century, and remain central figures in the fabric of the city.

Marchese Piero Antinori sums up the company’s outlook thus: “Ancient roots play an important role in our philosophy, but they have never held back our spirit of innovation.”
