Intense aromas of plums and cherries, full of ripe fruit
flavours through to a savoury finish with cinammon
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.
The vineyard is approximately 100 metres above sea level, with high average
temperatures and medium-low rainfall. The soft soil layer is clayey and quite thin, with
a good presence of rocks. Grapes are harvested the first week of September.
Thermo-controlled maceration for approximately ten days, followed by the alcoholic
fermentation with selected yeasts. Ageing took place in stainless steel tanks, to
preserve the varietal characteristics.
An intense aroma of plum, cherry and spice, with hints of rosemary and vanilla. A fullbodied
