ROSÉ WINE 'CALAFURIA' TORMARESCA-ANTINORI 2022 DESCRIPTION

Rosato "Calafuria," produced on the Antinori family's Tormaresca estate, is a perfect expression of the great tradition of Pugliese rosés. The region has always had a vocation for this refined type of wine, thanks to the presence of the native Negroamaro grape variety, which is particularly suited to this vinification. The name derives from that of a bay present along the Adriatic coast of Salento and symbolizes, not only the wine's area of origin, but also its marine vocation, which is expressed with a fresh, savory and Mediterranean profile, making it ideal for pairings with seafood appetizers especially with scampi or shrimp.

"Calafuria" is a Rosato born from Antinori's desire to expand the horizon of its properties outside the lands of Tuscany. The Tormaresca estate in Puglia includes two estates, Bocca di Lupo in the Castel del Monte area and Masseria Maime in Alto Salento. Masseria Maime covers an area of 500 hectares, about 350 of which are devoted to viticulture. The vineyards are located among olive groves, pine forests and large areas of Mediterranean scrub. The soils, which rest on a rocky substrate of a calcareous nature and the mild and very windy climate, have always been ideal for growing vines. The wine comes from Negroamaro vineyards grown near the Adriatic coast, in the first coastal hinterland. At the end of the harvest, the best bunches are selected by hand, and after destemming, soft pressing is carried out with very brief contact with the skins. After static decantation, the free-run juice is vinified in white wine in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 16 °C with selected yeasts. The wine matures for several months in steel tanks and completes its aging with 4 months in bottle before release.

Rosato "Calafuria" from Antinori's Tenuta Tormaresca is a harmonious and refined wine that highlights the best qualities of Negroamaro, combined with a typically territorial connotation, which is expressed in the marine breath that envelops the fruity aromas. To the eye it shows a beautiful soft pink color with luminous reflections. The olfactory profile is fine and elegant, with fragrances of citrus fruits, pink grapefruit, aromas of red currant, raspberry, pomegranate, delicate floral nuances, hints of aromatic herbs typical of the Mediterranean maquis and iodine sensations. The palate entry is soft, thanks to a ripe and satisfying fruit, which finds a perfect taste balance in a fresh and pleasantly savory finish.
