Bocca di Lupo Aglianico Castel del Monte 2018
Tenuta Bocca di Lupo is located at an altitude of 250 meters above sea level in the heart of the rugged Murgia area near Minervino Murge about 90 kilometers west of Bari. All of the estate’s vineyards are certified organic and are located on calcareous and low-nutrient soils that are excellent for producing the finest quality red wines and superb white wines. The main grape varieties grown are Chardonnay, Fiano, Aglianico, Nero di Troia, Cabernet Sauvignon and Moscato di Trani. Bocca di Lupo is the spark that lit Tormaresca’s enological dream. The desire to re-discover the noble and austere Aglianico grape variety by offering an alternative yet authentic interpretation has guided this project for the past fifteen years. Fully mature vines allow them to produce concentrated grapes perfect for producing wines with great aging potential. Made from 100% Aglianico Bocca di Lupo is a deep, intense ruby red colour. The nose expresses notes of red fruit like morello cherries, currants, and ripe pomegranates. The complex bouquet is completed by spicy hints of white pepper and liquorice accompanied by balsamic notes of thyme and eucalyptus. The palate is refined with vibrant yet silky tannins. A lengthy and persistent finish delivers pleasant sensations of freshness and complexity.
