Wine tasting notes

Abundant aromas of black cherry conserve and soft, ripe fruit on the nose with a hint of spice. This deeply coloured, full-bodied wine has a velvety, opulent palate – powerful and intense, yet balanced, rich in fine tannins with a pleasing long finish. A superb example of what the Primitvo grape can produce!

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.

Vinification notes

Presented in a beautiful bottle, this wine is made from 100% Negroamaro grapes from selected vineyards between San Marzano and Francavilla Fontana, grown on mostly terra rossa soil which has a high presence of iron oxide, giving it its famous reddish colour. The soil also has a fine texture and a generally calcareous sub-layer with a few emerging rocks. The grapes were hand-picked into small baskets during the last week of September. The must was macerated for two weeks followed by fermentation with native yeasts, and the wine was then matured in a combination of French and Caucasian oak barrels for 12 months prior to release
