Farming type: Guyot (4,500 vines per hectare). Grape harvest: Middle ten dqays of August. Vinification: The grapes are destemmed and left in cryomaceration for a few hours.

Ageing: On yeasts in French oak barriques for 4 months, with weekly b√Ętonnage. Tasting notes: Straw yellow colour with golden reflections; mellow citrus fruits and delicate vanilla floral notes fill the nose; to the taste it is generous in its elegance, fresh, delicate and mineral.

Estate

San Marzano is a small village in the centre of the Primitivo di Manduria DOC region, a strip of land kissed by the two seas of the Salento: the Ionian and the Adriatic. In 1962 the DOC appellation did not yet exist, and the Primitivo di Manduria was far from becoming a cult wine for wine lovers. Even so, 19 winemakers came together to follow a dream and founded Cantine San Marzano.
