  • Deep in colour, this velvety and opulent wine shows aromas of black dried cherry, soft ripe fruits and a hint of spice. Full bodied and powerful, yet balanced, it is rich in fine tannins, with a pleasantly long lasting finish.
The grapes are grown at selected vineyards located between San Marzano and Francavilla Fontana. The climate is characterised by high temperatures all year round, with very little rainfall and a wide diurnal temperature range which positively influences the quality of the grapes. The soil is mainly terra rossa, with a fine texture and a generally calcareous underground with a few emerging rocks. The well-known reddish colour of this soil is due to the high presence of iron oxide. The vineyards are managed sustainably, with technology being used to monitor weather conditions in order to minimise the work required in the vineyard. A bio-fertiliser made from seaweed from the nearby Ionian Sea is employed as an alternative to chemical fertilisers. Biodiversity within the vineyard is encouraged by the planting of indigenous grape varieties, alongside Mediterranean trees and plants which are resistant to drought thereby reducing water waste. The manual harvest takes place during the last week of September.

In 1962, 19 vine growers from San Marzano whose families had farmed the land for generations, combined their efforts to establish 'Cantine San Marzano'. Through the decades this cooperative has grown significantly, attracting over 1,200 top-quality vine growers. Using modern and technologically advanced vinification techniques they produce elegant wines that pay homage to the ancient Apulian wine traditions. The fusion of time honoured tradition, passion and contemporary techniques, enables this
winery to produce wines with distinctive varietal and regional characteristics while eflecting the local terroir. In 2021, San Marzano was awarded the ‘Cooperative Winery of the Year Award’ by Gambero Rosso.
