San Marzano Talo Primitivo di Manduria 2018

A rich and opulent wine with vibrant flavours of stewed red peppers and juicy brambly fruit on a vanilla and cinnamon background packing a punch of flavour.

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 cold winter was followed by a mild, temperate spring with low rainfall. Summer was very hot and dry; which kept the vineyard healthy and resulted in an early harvest at the beginning of August. The total production was smaller than the previous year, however it was characterised by high quality grapes with concentrated fruit flavours; with excellent sugar and polyphenolic structure.

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 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 were carefully selected and then underwent temperature controlled fermentation at 25 to 26°C with selected yeasts, lasting approximately 10 days. The wine was matured in French and American wood barrels, for a period of six months.

Tasting Note

A rich and opulent wine with vibrant flavours of ripe cherries and plums combined with subtle overtones of cocoa and vanilla. This wine has a velvety texture, softened by the warmth of the Primitivo grapes; brambly fruits on the palate and a persistent sweetness on the finish.
