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 nice wines with authentic Puglia grapes aged in oak barrels. elegant, complex and, as with all wines from San Marzano, excellent price/quality.

"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 tribute to each story"

This Verdeca from the Talò series comes from vineyards located in Salento, Puglia. The The area is located about 100 meters above sea level, with a dry microclimate and good water retention. Verdeca is a grape that originates in the northwest of Puglia. The grape is often confused with the Verdicchio grape from Le Marche (partly because one of its synonyms is Verdicchio Verde), but Verdeca is genetically a completely different grape. This grape is a quality grape from Puglia and produces very aromatic white wines with beautiful mineral notes and good acidity, making the grape easy to grow even in very warm Puglia.

After harvest, the grapes are given a cold skin soaking for 6 to 8 hours, followed by alcoholic fermentation in French oak barrels. The maturation also takes place in French oak barrels for 3 months with periodic bâtonnage.

The San Marzano Talò Verdeca has a straw yellow color with golden hues. The nose reveals surprising aromas of white flowers and vanilla. Fresh and mineral on the palate with a pleasant persistence. Delicious with seafood, shellfish and boiled fish with light sauces.

Vineyard for 2022 San Marzano Talo Verdeca

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.
