    Der Tormaresca Torcicoda Primitivo gehört zum Hause Antinori - was für ein Versprechen! Und er hält dieses auch. Typische würzige Nase mit viel süsser Frucht, sehr rotbeerig und ein echter Gaumenschmeichler. Hervorragend zu herzhafter italienischer Küche aber auch Solo macht dieser Primitivo eine tolle Figur!
