Bocca di Lupo is the spark that lit the enological dream of the Tormaresca estate. The desire to rediscover this noble and austere varietal by offering an authentic apulian interpretation drove Tormaresca's project. Fully mature vines allow us to produce grapes with depth and therefore ideal for making wines with great aging potential and likely to evolve over time. Bocca di Lupo ferments in barrique for fifteen months and ages in the bottle for two years before release.
The 2012 vintage explodes from the glass in a shower of brambly blue fruits, licorice, sun-warmed earth, leather, violet petals and baking spices. Textured and satisfying, this wine fills the mouth and suffuses the palate with a weighty feel, electric acidity and chewy, elegant tannins. As delicious as this Antinori bottling is right now, it has the stuffing to age for decades, growing mellow and silky with maturity.
