Cantine San Marzano was founded in 1962 when 19 winegrowers from San Marzano joined forces. San Marzano is located in the south of Italy in the wine-growing region of Apulia. In the heart of the acclaimed DOC Primitivo di Manduria. Currently, this cooperative has grown to 1200 growers from Apulia and Sicily. Since the beginning, the latest wine technologies have been used here without violating the very old wine traditions from Apulia. The goal of San Marzano is to produce accessible and affordable wines for every wine lover with a lot of love and passion. The provinces of Taranto and Brindisi offer a landscape where vineyards and olive trees grow side by side on a red surface full of iron and minerals. This characteristic soil and the Mediterranean terroir play an essential role in the production of this and the other premium wines of San Marzano.

For the production of San Marzano Vino Rosso d'Italia Collezione Cinquanta, the slightly overripe Primitivo and Negroamaro grapes are destemmed and crushed after being picked manually. The vines for these grapes are on average no less than 50 years old. This age gives the wine more depth and complexity. A skin soaking and alcoholic fermentation follows. The malolactic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks. The San Marzano Cinquanta then matures for 12 months in French oak barriques.

The San Marzano Vino Rosso d'Italia Collezione Cinquanta +6 (6th version of this limited edition) is ruby red in the glass with purple reflections; intense and complex bouquet with fruity notes that can be attributed to plums and jam, and spicy hints reminiscent of vanilla and licorice; intense in the mouth, with lots of structure and softness, long aftertaste. Collezione Cinquanta San Marzano is a beautiful, phenomenal, detailed summary of Salento, and everything else that southern Italy has to offer. Delicious with red meat and game. A meditation wine.

Vineyard for San Marzano Vino Rosso d’Italia Collezione Cinquanta +6

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.
