San Marzano 62 Anniversario Primitivo Manduria Riserva 2017

A densely flavoured and fleshy wine with hints of prunes

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


Vintage
A mild winter was followed by a warm spring. Summer was humid and rainy,
consequently harvesting took place one week earlier than average to preserve the
quality of the grapes. Careful selection was made in the vineyard resulting in
reduced yields, but maintaining the high quality of fruit. The 2018 wines are lower in
alcohol, slightly higher in acidity and show very intense aromatics and flavours.


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.
