cinnamon background packing a punch of flavour.
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.
Vineyard
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.
Winemaking
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.
Tasting Note
A rich and opulent wine with vibrant flavours of ripe cherries and plums combined
with subtle overtones of cocoa and vanilla. This wine has a velvety texture, softened
by the warmth of the Primitivo grapes; brambly fruits on the palate and a persistent
sweetness on the finish.
Serving Suggestion
A versatile red, which accompanies savoury first courses, lamb and game dishes
served with rich sauces or hard cheeses.
