The 2016 vintage of Torcicoda is a brilliant garnet red in color. Aromas of black and red berry fruit are first offered on the nose, followed by delicate notes of licorice and vanilla. The wine is beautifully structured with a complex, long-lasting finish.

Well-balanced and fresh, this medium-bodied red features a thread of ground spice that underscores flavors of crushed black raspberry, cherry, thyme and red licorice. Light tannins sculpt the clean-cut finish. Drink now through 2025. 4,000 cases imported.

The Antinori family's Tormaresca estate offers some great values from Puglia. One of those notable value wines is the 2016 Primitivo Torcicoda, which should be easy to locate with 200,000 bottles released. This Primitivo is focused mostly on black fruit and dried blackberry with lighter shadings of tobacco and toasted nut. With only 10 months in the barrel, those oak characteristics emerge more clearly in terms of mouthfeel than they do on the bouquet. It's perfect for cheese-filled panzerotti.
