The Wine:An intense aroma of plum, cherry and spice, with hints of rosemary and vanilla. A full bodied wine, soft and balanced, full of ripe fruit flavours in an easy drinking style.
Named European Producer of the Year 2015 by Imbibe Magazine's Sommelier Wine Awards - no mean feat given the nature of the competition. This Puglian cooperative is one of the most professional, forward thinking companies in Southern Italy, with a reputation for producing great wines.
San Marzano was established in 1962 when 19 vine growers from San Marzano decided to pool their resources and combine their efforts and skills in the pursuit of making wines that truly reflected the region and its native grapes.
They have never looked back, and now the co-op boasts more than 1,200 vine growers. The philosophy remains, however, which is why wines made from the local Negroamaro and Primitivo varieties are central to what they and their efforts go towards.
The Mediterranean terroir plays a key role in the production of these high quality wines, and the region's climate is extreme with droughts, wind and frost all playing a part. It's testament to the skill of the winemakers that even the fruits of the oldest bush vine can be made into full-bodied and elegant wines, capable of considerable ageing.
A great red to be paired with red meat, game and mature cheese.
