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 the Sommelier Wine Awards, San Marzano was awarded
European Producer of the Year 2017.


Vintage
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
year.


Vineyard
Talo is the surname of one of the winegrowers that has supplied San Marzano for
many years. San Marzano recognises the contribution their producers make, with
whom they work closely to achieve the best from their land. The outstanding quality
of these wines could not be created without them. The vineyard is located in
Salento, Puglia at approximately 100 metres above sea level. The site benefits from a
great diurnal temperature variation, which is ideal for promoting an extended
ripening period for the vines and concentrating the flavours in the berries. The soft soil
layer is clayey and quite thin, with a good presence of rocks, making it an ideal
growing location for vines. The harvest takes place during the second week of
September.


Winemaking
The grapes underwent temperature controlled maceration for approximately 10 days
extracting the desired level of colour, aromatics and structure. Fermentation took
place with selected yeasts and once completed, the wine was aged in French oak
barrels for four to six months imparting subtle complexity.


Tasting Note
An intense and complex bouquet of ripe red fruits combined with hints of spice. A
full-bodied wine with delicious flavours of Morello cherry and vanilla notes through to
a smooth finish.
