San Marzano Vindoro Salento Negroamaro 2020

An intense and densely textured wine showing powerful
flavours of dried cherry, liquorice and coffee grounds,
warm, savoury and satisfying.
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 are grown at selected vineyards located between San Marzano and
Francavilla Fontana. The climate is characterised by high temperatures all year round,
with very little rainfall and a wide diurnal temperature range which positively influences
the quality of the grapes. The soil is mainly terra rossa, with a fine texture and a
generally calcareous underground with a few emerging rocks. The well-known reddish
colour of this soil is due to the high presence of iron oxide. The manual harvest takes
place during the last week of September.
Winemaking
The grapes were hand-picked into small baskets to preserve the quality of the fruit. The
must was then macerated for two weeks. Fermentation took place with autochthonous
yeasts at 24 to 26°C in temperature controlled vats. The wine was then aged in French
oak barrels for 12 months, prior to release.
Tasting Note
Deep in colour, this velvety and opulent wine shows aromas of black dried cherry, soft
ripe fruits and a hint of spice. Full bodied and powerful, yet balanced, it is rich in fine
tannins, with a pleasantly long lasting finish.
