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.
Talo is the surname of one of the winegrowers that has supplied San Marzano for years. It allows San Marzano to recognise the contribution of the producers with whom they work closely to produce the best from their land. The outstanding quality of these wines couldn’t be achieved without them. These grapes are produced from vines which are located in San Marzano, Salento, Puglia. The vineyard is situated at approximately 100 metres above sea level and the microclimate enjoys high average temperatures and medium-low rainfall. The soft soil layer is clayey and quite thin, with a good presence of rocks, making it an ideal growing location for vines. The harvest takes place during the second week of September.
The grapes were carefully selected and then underwent a thermo-controlled maceration for approximately 10 days. Fermentation took place with selected yeasts through to dryness. The wine was then matured in French and American wood barrels, for a period of six months.
