San Marzano Vini S.p.A. : Wine Sharing Beauty, a wine born to celebrate a success

Must read

San Marzano is a leading wine producer from the region of Puglia, in the heel of Italy’s boot. The story began in 1962, when 19 vine growers from the village of San Marzano, whose families had farmed the land for generations, came together to follow their dream and founded Cantine San Marzano. Throughout the decades it has grown significantly and now attracts over 1,200 top-quality vine growers.

The vines are cultivated with the utmost respect for the natural rhythm of the vineyard. The native grapes are grown in the beautiful Puglian countryside, where gentle sea breezes, the azure blue skies and sun-kissed vines produce ripe, juicy fruit bursting with flavour.

Using modern vinification techniques, San Marzano produces elegant and clean wines that pay homage to the ancient Puglian wine traditions. This fusion of timehonoured tradition, passion and contemporary craftsmanship, enables 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 peculiar and innovative style that makes San Marzano recognizable at the first sip. Caterina Bellanova and Davide Ragusa were born and grew up in Puglia: Caterina represents the exquisite touch essential to create iconic wines, Davide is a young and talented winemaker, he studied Oenology in Florence and developed his practical skills during several harvests also abroad. San Marzano invests in all sorts of young professional profiles in order to obtain the best from them and for them.

San Marzano and the Primitivo. San Marzano has played a central role in enhancing the value and profile of Primitivo producing world-class wines and icon labels. An example, among many, Sessantanni Primitivo di Manduria DOP, result of an intuition of the President, Mr. Francesco Cavallo, who was determined to create a new wine that could express the authenticity of the Primitivo grape in a new and modern interpretation.

Collezione Cinquanta Rosso d’Italia: a wine born to celebrate a success. 2012, fifty years after the foundation of Cantine San Marzano, Collezione Cinquanta (= Collection Fifty) was born. A one-off meant to be wine, only made to celebrate the year, 1962, when 19 growers planted their most ambitious dream. The front label shows all the years from the foundation to 2012, as a visual reminder of the path that led to success.

No vintage, a precious blend of the most typical red varieties of the area, among which Primitivo and Negroamaro stand out, grown on old vines trained in little bushes, the so-called Alberelli (=small trees). Once on the market, consumers really appreciated the experiment to such an extent that they winery decided to make it a permanent project, a pearl of the top-range wines. Even though it has no regional indication, the wine is a compendium of the land where it comes from, Salento, the southern-most subregion of Puglia, being an interesting blend of local red grapes selected over the last best vintages. Gold Medal at 2020 Singapore Awards, it is a powerful red, with a complex bouquet of ripe red fruits and spices, barreled aged for 12 months, well structured and with a stunning balance, achieved by the thorough work of the winemakers with all their expertise.
