San Marzano Tramari Salento Primitivo Rose 2019

Made from the Primitivo grape, this is a very appealing pale and tangy rosé with aromas of roses and red cherries against a creamy background of Mediterranean spice.


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, with good total acidity and healthy, ripe fruit.

Vineyard
The San Marzano Primitivo vineyard is located in Salento, Puglia and is situated at approximately 100 metres above sea level. The area is characterised by high average temperatures and a medium-low rainfall. The vines are planted at a density of 4,500 per hectare. The soft soil layer is clayey and quite thin, with a good presence of rocks, providing good drainage for the vines. Harvesting takes place during the first week of September.

Winemaking
Skin contact maceration took place for several hours, followed by a partial drawing off the must. Fermentation took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, preserving the aromatics and fruitiness of the Primitivo variety. Ageing then continued in stainless steel to retain freshness.
