The Cheese Lady's Recommended Pairings
Torcicoda Primitivo, Salento IGP, Tormaresca, Puglia Italy
Typical varietal aromas of Primitivo - rich, ripe red fruits alongside a light element of prune and some spice from the wood. Soft, round and full-bodied on the palate, with a depth and wild complexity that sets it apart.
The Cheese Lady's favourite red!
Enjoy with complex mature ewe's milk cheeses or mature alpine cheeses.
Tormaresca was a project born out of a desire to shine the spotlight on the indigenous grape varieties of the region of Puglia.
Nestled at about 300 metres above sea level, the estate is an area with challenging climatic conditions. Locals have learned how to harness these unique environmental factors, be it the region’s harsh winters, extreme temperature fluctuations, steep ravines, thick fogs or close proximity to an ancient volcano.
The team at Tormaresca use these conditions to their advantage, producing wines which represent this unique terroirs and truly capture their sense of place.
