Winery information

San Marzano

In 1962, 19 vine growers from San Marzano whose families had farmed the land for generations combined their efforts to establish 'Cantine San Marzano'. San Marzano is a small village in the centre of the Primitivo di Manduria DOC region in the Salento sub-region of Puglia, in the heel of Italy’s boot. 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 name Puglia incidentally, comes from the Latin for ”rainless”.
In the Sommelier Wine Awards, San Marzano was awarded European Producer of the Year 2017. The vineyards are located at approximately 100 metres above sea level and benefit 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 soils are quite thin, soft and shallow, but have a good texture.
The following wines are all vegetarian and vegan friendly.

Food matching

This is a great accompaniment to hearty dishes such as rich meat stews; aubergine parmigiana; or roasted meats.

Vinification notes

The grapes were destemmed, crushed and underwent cold pre-fermentation maceration. Fermentation took place with indigenous yeasts before being gently pressed. Malolactic fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks which helped to soften the resulting wine, before it was aged for 12 months in fine French oak barrels.
