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 2021, San Marzano was awarded the ‘Cooperative Winery of the Year
Award’ by Gambero Rosso.
Vintage
During 2020, low spring temperatures resulted in a 15 to 21 day delay between the
flowering and fruit setting stages. However, a sharp increase in temperatures from the
second week in July reduced the delay to 10 to 12 days. Broadly, due to the overall
lower sunny days registered during winter and spring, the yields were reduced. The
summer was dry, windy and sunny with ideal pre-harvest conditions. The yields for the
red grapes was reduced by between 25 to 35%; the grapes harvested were very
healthy and of good quality, with an excellent aromatic profile.
Vineyard
The vineyard is approximately 100 metres above sea level, with high average
temperatures and medium-low rainfall. The soft soil layer is clayey and quite thin, with a
good presence of rocks. The grapes are harvested during the first week of September
when they have reached optimal ripeness.
Winemaking
The grapes underwent temperature controlled maceration for approximately 10 days to
extract the desired level of colour, flavour and fine tannins. Alcoholic fermentation took
place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts. The wine was
made in an unoaked style to preserve the vibrancy of fruit and varietal characteristics.
Tasting Note
An intense aroma of plum, cherry and spice, with hints of rosemary and vanilla. A fullbodied wine, yet soft and balanced, full of ripe fruit flavours in an easy drinking style.
