Made from the Primitivo grape, this is a very appealing pale and tangy rosé with aromas of roses and red cherries against a creamy background of Mediterranean spice.

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.

Vintage

A mild winter was followed by a warm spring. Summer was humid and rainy, consequently harvesting took place one week earlier than average to preserve the quality of the grapes. Careful selection was made in the vineyard resulting in reduced yields, but maintaining the high quality of fruit. The wines are lower in alcohol, slightly higher in acidity and show very intense aromatics and flavours.

Vineyard

The San Marzano Primitivo vineyard is located in Salento, Puglia and is situated at approximately 100 metres above sea level. The area is characterised by high average temperatures and a medium-low rainfall. The vines are planted at a density of 4,500 per hectare. The soft soil layer is clayey and quite thin, with a good presence of rocks, providing good drainage for the vines. Harvesting takes place during the first week of September.

Winemaking

Skin contact maceration took place for several hours, followed by a partial drawing off the must. Fermentation took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, preserving the aromatics and fruitiness of the Primitivo variety. Ageing then continued in stainless steel to retain freshness.

Tasting Note

A softly coloured rosé with intense aromas of wild cherries and raspberries, combined with an attractive hint of Mediterranean maquis - the local aromatic shrubland. Elegantly styled and slightly off-dry, with a refreshing finish.
