Tormaresca is an Antinori winery in Apulia in southern Italy. This is an organic blend of 65% Aglianico, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Syrah.  Ruby in color, mostly opaque and bright.  The nose is very nice with black cherries, cherries, sour cherries, along with some char and spice.  With air, some anise comes out.  Light tannins.  Supple texture.  On the palate, the cherries and black cherries dominate with some spice and smoke.  Very energetic.  Nice finish.  This is just starting to drink well but should continue to develop for another ten to twelve years.  Nice on its own, this will work well with foods such as Orecchiette or other pastas.
