In 1962, 19 winemakers, determined to demonstrate the high potential of wines from Salento, founded "Cantine San Marzano". From the silver sea of olive trees, the white stones at noon, the bright secrets woven in lace, and languidly inviting baroque palaces, comes Edda, a "feminine" wine, with a mineral, timeless temperament, an ineffable fruit in a land of charm. Although Puglia is mainly the domain of Italian grape varieties, chardonnay also thrives here. This is partly due to the cool sea breeze that blows through the vineyards at night. This allows the grapes to build up the necessary freshness. This ensures the desired acidity and good balance between fruit, acids and alcohol.

The San Marzano EDDA Bianco Salento is predominantly Chardonnay with a bit of two special indigenous grapes, Moscatello selvatico and Fiano. The Moscatello selvatico is a spontaneous crossing of Moscato di Alessandria and Bombino Bianco and is very rare. It is not popular with vintners due to its low yields, but its taste is spectacular. Fiano is an original southern Italian. It barely survived the phylloxera plague, but is now making a comeback due to its aromatic qualities. The vineyards are located near the sea at approximately 100 meters above sea level. Cold skin soaking and alcoholic fermentation in French oak barrels. After alcoholic fermentation, the wine matures for another 4 months "on the lie" with weekly bâtonnage.

In the glass, the EDDA Bianco has a straw yellow color with golden reflections; soft citrus fruits and delicate floral vanilla notes fill the nose. The taste is generous, elegant, fresh, delicate and minerally. The aftertaste is long and soft with a hint of green herbs. The wine goes well with starters and entrees of fish and crustaceans and shellfish, summer salads with chicken or shrimp. But especially a great accompaniment to creamy cheeses.

Vineyard for 2022 San Marzano EDDA Bianco

In 1962, 19 winegrowers from San Marzano joined forces to create "Cantine San Marzano". Today, this cooperative has more than 1200 growers and uses modern and technologically advanced installations without compromising the very old wine tradition of Puglia. San Marzano is located in Puglia, in the heart of the acclaimed DOC "Primitivo di Manduria", between two seas (Ionian and Adriatic).

The provinces of Taranto and Brindisi offer a landscape where vineyards and olive trees grow side by side on a red substrate. This soil and the Mediterranean terroir play an essential role in the production of high-quality wines. The climate is extreme, with difficult conditions: drought, frost, Sirocco wind. Yet these passionate winemakers ensure that even grapes from the oldest vineyards produce full-bodied and elegant wines. Respect for the traditions of Puglia and passion for wine are paramount, but go hand in hand with technological developments and clever marketing. The modern wines of San Marzano are now extremely popular in Italian wine bars. The San Marzano label is their premium line, which even appears on the table in Michelin restaurants.

Using modern vinification techniques, San Marzano produces elegant and clean wines that pay tribute to the ancient Apulian winemaking traditions. This fusion of time-honored tradition, passion and contemporary craftsmanship allows the production of wines with distinctive varietal characteristics that reflect the essence of the local terroir. The team of winemakers is built to create the idiosyncratic and innovative style that makes San Marzano recognizable from the first sip. Caterina Bellanova and Davide Ragusa were born and raised in Puglia: Caterina represents the exquisite touch essential to make iconic wines, Davide is a young and talented winemaker, he studied oenology in Florence and developed his practical skills during several harvests, including in Abroad.

The strength of San Marzano lies in its versatility. However, she does have some hobbyhorses. She is a real star in the Primitivo from Di Manduria. San Marzano is also the right address for the wine drinker who is looking for depth and complexity. How about the San Marzano Collezione Cinquanta. This is a complex red wine that unites all the beauty of Salento, part of Puglia. But the real winner is the Sessantanni Primitivo di Manduria, a real top wine that the whole world has fallen in love with. It was not for nothing that this powerhouse received no less than 98 points from Luca Maroni, who is considered the Italian counterpart of Robert Parker.
