This red wine from Puglia is pleasant due to its warmth on the palate, it is rich with a great structure and taste sustainability. The ageing in barrique barrels gives this cuvée its enormous length and elegance, velvety tannins round off the taste experience. The finish is pleasant and long lasting. 

Vinification of Tormaresca Trentangeli Castel del MONTE DOC

The grapes for this cuvée from Aglianico 70%, Cabernet Sauvignon 20% and Syrah 10% come from the vineyards of the Bocca di Lupo winery of Tormaresca, not far from Castel del Monte. The grapes are harvested at a very high degree of ripeness in order to produce a rich wine. After pressing, the must is fermented in stainless steel tanks  in contact with the skins at 25 ° Celsius, whereby these are repeatedly gently mixed with the must in order to extract as many extracts as possible from the grapes. After subtracting from the peels, the wine is aged in French and Hungarian oak barriques, undergoing malolactic fermentation, followed by ageing for 12 months and a further 8 months in the bottle before being sold.

This wine arose out of the desire to introduce wine enthusiasts to the ancient grape variety Aglianico and to demonstrate the enormous potential and complexity of this grape variety in a modern cuvée. The wine comes from a part of the winery, where today there is a railway crossing, once a place where the shepherds and their herds rested on their long seasonal hikes. According to legend, the passage of the shepherds was protected by thirty angels, which ultimately gave the wine the name Trentangeli.
