A densely flavoured and fleshy wine with hints of prunes
and chocolate covered black cherry combined with
fresh herbs, 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.
Vineyard
The grapes are produced in very old vineyards selected in San Marzano and Sava,
planted at a density of 5000 bush vines per hectare. The soil is mainly red with a fine
texture and is generally calcareous with few emerging rocks. The renowned redness
of the soils is due to the presence of iron oxides. The climate is characterised by high
temperatures all year round, very little rainfall and a wide diurnal temperature range,
which has a positive influence on the quality of the grapes. This is the central area of
D.O.P. "Primitivo di Manduria". The harvest takes place during the second half of
September.
Winemaking
The grapes were hand-harvested once they had reached an advanced state of
ripening. 80% of the must was macerated for a period of 18 days, with the remaining
20% being macerated for slightly longer, approximately 25 days, imparting
complexity and a layered dimension in the resulting wine. The thermo-controlled
fermentation took place at temperatures of 24 to 26°C. The wine was matured for 18
months in fine French and American barrels.
Tasting Note
Deep and complex flavours of prunes, black cherry, spice and tobacco weave
through the full bodied palate with its velvety texture and long, savoury finish. Quite
delicious.
Serving Suggestion
The perfect partner with red meat, game and savoury first courses.
