Must-Have Tormaresca 2015 Bocca di Lupo, Arriving Soon!
January 23, 2020
A Note from Sergio

Winter can be annoying. Snow gets tracked into your house, no matter how much you try to keep it out. You have to shovel, dig out your car, or merely navigate congested, slushy city streets. But every season has its beauty--something you remember when many of your friends grow grapes (or any other food) for a living. Winter snow banks moisture for the coming months, and winter snow covers the living plants with a nice, fluffy, insulated coat. Even places where winter means unremitting gray and brown have their own stark allure as plants slumber in the cold earth.

Winter is necessary to the regions where winter is natural, and I say that the best thing to do with winter weather is celebrate it. Cook yourself hearty stews, big bowls of pasta, thick warm soup, or a nice cut of meat; open a big bottle of wine, and hunker down with friends and family to enjoy the cold weather from the warmth of your own home. To help you do exactly this, I've picked a wine that's delicious, warming, and hearty--Tormaresca's silky, seductive 2015 Bocca di Lupo, a knockout Aglianico.

Born and raised in Napoli, I love Aglianico, and this Antinori family wine rolls along your tongue and fills your belly with Campanian sunshine. Usually Aglianico wines need a lot of time in the cellar before you can enjoy them, but not this Tormaresca bottling--you can enjoy it as soon as it hits your table, or you can forget it in your cellar for years. This deeply enjoyable, thoroughly Italian wine punches far above its $60 price point, and you're going to love it!

Price: $59.99

Balsamic herbs, flinty soil, warm spices, potpourri and berry jam frame the pure, opulent red and blue fruits in the ’15 Bocca di Lupo. Balanced and beautiful, this wine’s firm tannins cling to the cheeks as elegant minerality and fresh acidity propel the wine’s resonant finish. After allowing the Aglianico grapes to ripen fully, Tormaresca vinifies them in temperature-controlled stainless steel, and the wine ferments in barrique for fifteen months and ages in the bottle for two years before release. While Aglianico frequently requires time in the cellar before enjoyment, this bottle from Antinori's Tormaresca allows for earlier approachability, yet it sacrifices nothing for longevity. more info
