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 2020 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, resulting in healthy, ripe fruit
with balancing natural acidity. The harvest started five days earlier than the previous
year.


Vineyard
The vineyard sits at approximately 100 metres above sea level and benefits from
great diurnal temperature variations, which are ideal for promoting an extended
ripening period for the vines and concentrating the flavours in the berries. The vines
are planted at a density of 4,000 vines per hectare and are grown in soft soils, which
are thin with a fine texture and good drainage. The harvest takes place during the
second and third weeks of August.


Winemaking
The grapes were crushed, destemmed and gently pressed. Cold static
sedimentation was followed by alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperatures of
approximately 15 to 16°C, which retained both the freshness and fruity aromatics.
The wine was aged in stainless steel, to preserve these fruit-forward characteristics.


Tasting Note
Floral notes combine with aromas of tropical fruits and a hint citrus zest. This lively,
fresh white blend has a touch of minerality and is bursting with ripe flavours from the
South of Italy.
