San Marzano Talo Primitivo di Manduria 2019

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 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 wines are lower in
alcohol, slightly higher in acidity and show very intense aromatics and flavours.


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.
