San Marzano Timo Puglia Vermentino 2021

Exotic floral and lime cordial aromas combine with notes
of thyme and rosemary enhanced by green apple
through to a saline, zesty finish.
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.
Vineyard
The vines are grown in Brindisi, Salento in Puglia at an elevation of approximately 100
metres above sea-level. The warm climate is tempered by the proximity to the sea and
the influence of the strong oceanic winds. The wine takes its name ‘Timo’ from the
thyme bushes that grow along the rocky shoreline of the Ionian Sea, whose scent fills
the air with herbal fragrance of the Mediterranean garrigue known locally as maquis.
The vines are planted at a density of 5,000 vines per hectare and are double Guyot
trained, which encourages the best expression of the Vermentino variety as the leaves
protect the grapes from the high temperatures, allowing them to retain balancing
acidity. An integrated protection system has been implemented which monitors the
atmospheric conditions and uses targeted copper and sulphur treatments. The vines
are grown in shallow, medium textured sandy soils, with soil management techniques
of cover crops and green manure being used.
Winemaking
The grapes were destemmed and underwent several hours of skin contact at low
temperatures to extract the delicate floral aromas. Gentle pressing then obtained the
must which was fermented in stainless steel tanks with selected yeast for between 13 to
15 days at controlled temperatures of 15°C. The wine was aged in stainless steel for five
months, to retain the purity of fruit and preserve the varietal profile.

refreshing and mineral wine.
