In 1962, 19 winemakers from the Italian region of San Marzano came together to found the 'Cantina San Marzano'. Over the years, this cooperative has grown to the point of attracting 1200 wine producers who, using modern equipment and advanced technology, deliver elegant labels with the utmost respect for Puglia's wine traditions. The winery is at the heart of the Primitivo di Manduria, a strip of land suspended between two seas, where vines and flower boxes grow side by side in a blanket of red earth.

Vine variety: Primitivo.

Area: Very old vineyards selected in the area of San Marzano (TA) and Sava (TA).

Soil: Finely textured residual red soil with a calcareous subsoil, sparse rocky outcrops and intense presence of iron oxides.

Farming type: Head-trained bush vines at least sixty years old (5,000 per hectare).

Grape harvest: Second half of September.

Vinification: Very ripe grapes are harvested manually. The maceration takes place for 18 days on 80% of the mass and for 25 days on 20%, with native yeasts selected in the vineyard. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 24-26 °C.

Ageing: In French and American oak barriques for 12 months.

Tasting notes: Very intense and elegant ruby red colour; ample and complex fruity fragrance with hints of plum, cherry jam and tobacco, slightly spicy; a full-bodied wine, soft and rich in tannins, with a finish that offers notes of cocoa, coffee and vanilla.
