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 2021, San Marzano was awarded the ‘Cooperative Winery of the Year
Award’ by Gambero Rosso.
During 2020, low spring temperatures resulted in a 15 to 21 day delay between the
flowering and fruit setting stages. However, a sharp increase in temperatures from the
second week in July reduced the delay to 10 to 12 days. Broadly, due to the overall
lower sunny days registered during winter and spring, the yields were reduced. The
summer was dry, windy and sunny with ideal pre-harvest conditions. At the time of
picking, the grapes were very healthy and of good quality, with an excellent aromatic
The vineyard is located at approximately 100 metres above sea level and benefits from
great diurnal temperature variations. The warmer temperatures during the day and
cooler nights encourage the grapes to have a long maturation period, with the heat of
the day promoting sugar accumulation, while the cooler nights preserve the acidity
levels. The vines are planted at a density of 4,500 vines per hectare and are trained
according to the Guyot method. The soils are quite thin, soft and shallow, but have a
good texture.
The grapes were gently destemmed and then cool macerated for several hours to
allow the flavour to develop. This was followed by a gentle pressing and a cold settling
to encourage a natural sedimentation. Fermentation took place in French oak barrels.
The wine was matured on its fine lees in barriques for a period of four months, with
weekly lees stirring which imparted texture and complexity to the wine.
Tasting Note
A distinctive blend delivering aromas of sun-ripened peach and mellow floral aromatics,
which are interwoven with delicate hints of vanilla. Fresh and beautifully balanced, the
rounded palate is elegantly styled and has a touch of minerality on the finish.
