San Marzano Collezione Cinquanta Vino Rosso d Italia NV

A big and fleshy wine full of chocolate and spice flavours,
smooth and very long. 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 vineyard is located in Salento, Puglia, where the vines are grown at an altitude of
approximately 100 metres above sea level. The temperatures are relatively high over
the summer, which encourages the berries to ripen evenly. The soil is predominantly
clay with some rocks, which help drainage. The vines are old, gnarly bush vines which
are over 50 years old and are planted at a density of 4,500 vines per hectare. The
Primitivo is grown in the highly reputed area of Manduria, locally regarded as the best
in Puglia. The harvest takes place in September, when the grapes are slightly overripe.
Winemaking
The grapes were destemmed, crushed and underwent cold pre-fermentation
maceration. Fermentation took place with indigenous yeasts before being gently
pressed. Malolactic fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks which helped to
soften the resulting wine, before it was aged for 12 months in fine French oak barrels.
Tasting Note
A generous, fleshy wine with dark berried fruit layered with chocolate and hints of spice.
Smooth with great purity of fruit through to a long sustained finish. Quite delicious.
