San Marzano is a small village in the centre of the Primitivo di Manduria DOC region in the Italian province of Puglia. It is a strip of land kissed by the two seas of the Salento: the Ionian and the Adriatic. In 1962 the DOC appellation did not yet exist, and the Primitivo di Manduria was far from becoming a cult wine for wine lovers. Even so, 19 winemakers, determined to demonstrate the high potential of wines from Salento, founded “Cantine San Marzano”. A long time has passed since then, yet their old vines still produce rare and precious grapes. The result is this intense, elegant Primitivo wine that will age well.
