In 1962, 19 winemakers, determined to demonstrate the high potential of wines from Salento, founded "Cantine San Marzano". The Talò series from San Marzano are all very fine wines with authentic Puglia grapes with aging in oak barrels. elegant, complex and, as with all San Marzano wines, an excellent price/quality ratio.

"In San Marzano, vine growers take care of their small vineyards as if they were gardens. Their stories are numerous, as are the names of their families. We have chosen one name, Talò, to thank each and every family and pay homage to each story"

The Susco Susumaniello Salento is, as the name implies, made from the Susumaniello grape and this is one of the rarest, ancient grape varieties in the world and until recently was almost extinct. The special grape is only planted in the heel of Italy in Salento (Puglia), where San Marzano makes a beautiful wine. Susumaniello is somewhere in between the primitivo and negro amaro varieties: less alcoholic and ripe than primitivo, and more perfumed than negro amaro.

The soil of the vineyards consists mainly of a sand-loam structure with many rocks. The grapes are harvested in mid-September. The grapes undergo a thermally controlled maceration at a low temperature and an alcoholic fermentation for about 10 days with selected yeasts. The wine is then aged for 6 months in French and American oak. The Susco Susumaniello Salento is intense ruby red in color. The wine has a bouquet of fruity, floral aromas, with dried herbs and a balsamic note. The wine has a good structure with a certain elegance and interesting acidity. Delicious with grilled meat and or mature cheeses.
