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, temperate spring was followed by a very hot and dry summer that resulted in an early harvest during the beginning of August. The total production was smaller than the previous year, however it was characterised by high quality grapes with concentrated fruit flavours.

Vineyard

Talò is the surname of one of the winegrowers that has supplied San Marzano for many years. San Marzano recognises the contribution their producers make, with whom they work closely to achieve the best from their land. The outstanding quality of these wines could not be created without them. The vineyard is located in Salento, Puglia at approximately 100 metres above sea level. The site benefits from a great diurnal temperature variation, which is ideal for promoting an extended ripening period for the vines and concentrating the flavours in the berries. Planted at a density of 4,000 vines per hectare, the vines are grown in soft soils, which are thin, with a fine texture and good drainage.

Winemaking

The grapes were harvested at optimal ripeness. A cold maceration took place for six to eight hours to extract the desired level of aromatics. Fermentation took place in French oak barrels. The wine was then matured in French oak barrels for three months, with periodic "bâtonnage" or lees stirring, which imparted subtle texture and complexity.

Tasting Note

A refreshing, dry Verdeca which shows a richness of aromatics- white flowers, crisp green apple and a hint of honey. Full flavoured, with a creamy texture and a thirst quenching finish.

Serving Suggestion

Delicious with fresh seafood and fish dishes with delicate sauces.
