San Marzano Anniversario 62 Primitivo di Manduria DOP Riserva 2017

San Marzano Anniversario 62 Primitivo di Manduria DOP Riserva celebrates the year in which Cantine San Marzao was founded (1962). Intense ruby red colour. A broad and complex nose of prunes and cherry jam with notes of tobacco and spice. Expresses all the strength and richness of the slightly overripe Primitivo grapes. Full-bodied and remarkably persistent, soft and rich in fine tannins. Ripe cherry jam flavour with notes of cocoa, coffee and vanilla on the finish.

100% Primitivo. The fruit comes from selected 60 year old bush vines that grow in San Marzano and Sava (TA), Salento Puglia. The climate is characterised by high temperatures all year round, very little rainfall and a wide temperature range between night and day, which has a positive influence on the quality of the grapes. This is the central area of the d.o.p. ”Primitivo di Manduria”. The vineyards have finely textured loam soils rich in iron oxides that give the topsoil its distinctive red hue. Calcareous limestone subsoil with few emerging rocks.

Malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The wine ages for 18 months in French and American oak barriques.
