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
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 calcerous underground with a few emerging rocks. The well-known redish colour of this soil is due to the high presence of iron oxide. The manual harvests take place during the last week of September. Winemaking
80% of the must was macerated for 18 days, with the remaining 20% being macerated for 25 days. A thermo-controlled alcoholic fermentation with autochthonous yeasts took place at 24 °C. The wine was then aged in French and Caucasian oak barrels for 12 months, prior to release. Tasting Note
Deep in colour, this velvety rich wine has aromas of black cherry jam, 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. Serving Suggestion
Ideal with savoury first courses, red meat, game and pecorino cheese.
