A big and fleshy wine with loads of chocolate and spice
flavours, smooth and very long. Quite delicious.
Producer Note
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 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 reflecting
the local terroir. In the Sommelier Wine Awards, San Marzano was awarded
European Producer of the Year 2017.
Vintage
This cuvée was created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the winery in 2012 and is
a stunning blend of three vintages. The first blend ever made was of the 2011, 2012
and 2013 vintages, subsequent blends are denoted by a + on the label. +1
indicates the blend is from the 2012, 2013, 2014 vintages.
Vineyard
The vineyard is located in Salento, Puglia, where the vines are grown at an altitude
of approximately 100 metres above sea level. The temperatures are relatively high
over the summer, which encourages the berries to ripen. The soil is predominantly
clay with some rocks, which help drainage. The vines are old, gnarly bush vines
which are over 50 years old and are planted at a density of 4500 vines per hectare.
The Primitivo is grown in the highly reputed area of Manduria, locally regarded as the
best in Puglia. The harvest takes place in September, when the grapes are slightly
overripe.
Winemaking
The grapes were destemmed, crushed and underwent a cold maceration prior to
fermentation. The fermentation took place with indigenous yeasts before being
drawn off with a gentle press. A malolactic fermentation took place in stainless steel
tanks which helped to soften the resulting wine, before it was aged for 12 months in
fine French oak barrels.
Tasting Note
An intense and complex wine showing fruity aromas of prunes and ripe red fruits
combined with spicy notes of vanilla and liquorice. Opulent, full bodied and smooth
on the palate with a deliciously long finish.
Serving Suggestion
This is a great accompaniment to hearty dishes such as rich meat stews; aubergine
parmigiana; or roasted meats.
