San Marzano Il Pumo Salento Negroamaro 2020

A juicy, mellow and savoury wine, full of flavour of
raisined red fruits, smooth and moreish.

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.

The 2019 vintage experienced a rainy winter which helped to restore soil water
reserves. A mild spring followed with little rain through to a very hot, dry and windy
summer, which reduced disease pressure in the vineyard. Good diurnal temperature
differences encouraged regular ripening of the grapes, resulting in healthy, ripe fruit
with balancing natural acidity. The harvest started five days earlier than the previous

The vineyard area is approximately 100 metres above sea level, with high average
temperatures and medium to low rainfall, providing excellent conditions for grape
production. The soft soil layer is clayey and quite thin, with a good presence of rocks
for drainage. Harvest takes place during the first few weeks of September.

A temperature controlled maceration took place for approximately 10 days, followed
by alcoholic fermentation with selected yeasts. The wine was aged in stainless steel
tanks to preserve the purity of fruit.

Tasting Note
Intense aromas of blackcurrants and wild fruits are complemented by subtle notes of
spice and thyme in this full-bodied Negroamaro. Charmingly balanced and juicy on
the palate, this is full of the flavours of Southern Italy.
