Tormaresca Calafuria 2017

Salento, Puglia, ItalyWe haven’t seen Calafuria in BC yet because it’s all the rage in Italy and there isn’t enough to go around. This negroamaro rosato is grown at the Maìme estate in San Pietro Vernotico. It was a very dry, warm year but the traditional viticulture of Puglia is well suited to the conditions, as evidenced by this tasty pink. With some help from a cooling Tramontana north wind there is a freshness here along with very clean, peachy, grapefruit flavours with a delicate watery edge. This is fun and now the number one selling rosé in Italy. A super patio pink.Tasted: 16 October 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 0.00 estimated retail price Producer: TormarescaDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
