Deep & complex flavours of plum, black cherry jam, spice & tobacco weave through the full-bodied palate with its velvety texture & long, complex finish. Quite delicious! 18 Months in French & American oak. One of our best-selling ‘premium’ wines & for good reason. If you like a full-bodied but incredibly smooth red wine then you can’t go wrong with this! Packaged in a typically heavy & chunky bottle which seems to have become a staple of the premium wines from this regions producers over the last few years.
In 1962, 19 vine growers from San Marzano whose families had farmed the land for generations, combined their efforts to establish ‘Cantine San Marzano’. Through the decades this cooperative has grown significantly, attracting over 1,200 vine growers. Using modern & technologically advanced vinification techniques they produce elegant wines that pay homage to the ancient Apulian wine traditions. The fusion of time honoured tradition, passion & contemporary techniques, enables this winery to produce wines with distinctive varietal & regional characteristics while reflecting the local terroir. In the Sommelier Wine Awards, San Marzano was awarded
European Producer of the Year 2017.
