Wine tasting notes

A deep ruby red with violet reflections and intense aromas of blackcurrants and wild fruits, complemented by subtle notes of spice and thyme. A full-bodied wine, which is charmingly balanced, soft on the palate and full of the flavours of Southern Italy.

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

An ideal accompaniment to savoury first courses, grilled red meat, game and mature cheese.

Vinification notes

A temperature controlled maceration took place for approximately 10 days, followed by alcoholic fermentation with selected yeasts. The wine was aged in stainless steel tanks to preserve the purity of fruit.
