San Marzano 62 Anniversario Primitivo Manduria Riserva 2018

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 2021, San Marzano was awarded the ‘Cooperative Winery of the Year
Award’ by Gambero Rosso.

Vineyard
The grapes come from the central area of D.O.P. "Primitivo di Manduria", where they
are grown in very old vineyards in San Marzano and Sava. They are planted at a
density of 5,000 bush vines per hectare. The soil is mainly red with a fine texture and is
generally calcareous with few emerging rocks. The renowned red hue 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, concentrating the flavours in the berries.
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. Temperature-controlled fermentation took place at 24 to 26°C and lasted for
approximately 15 days. The wine went through malolactic conversion in stainless steel
vats before being racked into French and American oak barrels, where it matured for
18 months.
Tasting Note
Deep and complex flavours of prunes, black cherry jam, spice and tobacco deliciously
weave through the full bodied palate with its velvety texture and long, complex finish of
cocoa, coffee and vanilla bean.
