In 1962, 19 winemakers, determined to demonstrate the high potential of wines from Salento, founded "Cantine San Marzano". The Timo is a winner from their range. Fresh, fruity and very elegant at a great price.

The Timo Vermentino of San Marzano comes from vineyards around Brindisi, Salento, Puglia. The vineyards are located close to the sea, but at an altitude of approximately 100 meters. There is therefore a temperate microclimate due to the proximity to the sea. The winds and cooling also ensure that work can be done without intervention because aphids or rot have no chance due to the drying, fresh effect of the sea wind. The grapes are destemmed and before pressing they are first left with their skins for several hours at low temperatures to relax in order to extract the full aromatic potential of the grapes. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks for 13-15 days at 15°C with subsequent maturation in stainless steel tanks for 5 months

In the glass, the Timo Vermentino has a straw yellow color; with delicate aromas of white flowers on the nose with notes of citrus and Mediterranean maquis. Elegant, fresh and mineral on the palate with hints of thyme and rosemary. Perfect with fish starters. Delicious with cheese

Vineyard for 2023 San Marzano Timo Vermentino

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.
