It is born in the classic production area of the Primitivo di Manduria doc, from the oldest vines of the company, almost centuries old! Grapes in an advanced state of ripeness are harvested manually and after vinification they are aged in French and American oak barrels for 12 months.

The San Marzano Primitivo di Manduria Sessantanni is an elegant and harmonious wine characterized by enveloping and intriguing aromas that know how to lead the olfactory taste perceptions by transporting the taster on an intense journey. It represents the qualitative top of the San Marzano Winery is one of the most interesting expressions of this great Mediterranean vine. It is a red suitable for those who love the breadth, the structure and the rich, almost opulent extraction, which translates into warm, soft and enveloping sensations. At the sight it has a dark ruby red color. On the nose aromas of sweet fruit, plums and ripe blackberries, cherry jam; here come fragrant spicy notes of licorice, sandalwood, cardamom, pepper, tobacco, incense and cocoa. On the palate it appears rich, intense, explosive but exquisitely balanced and elegant. A wine of great body, powerful but caressing.

Exalts meat dishes such as mutton chops, beef stew, roast pork leg. In general it is excellent for important preparations.

San Marzano is a small town in the center of the Primitivo di Manduria doc, a strip of land kissed by the two seas in Salento, the Ionian and the Adriatic. In 1962 the doc was not born yet, the Primitivo di Manduria is far from being that cult wine, as it has become for wine lovers. Yet 19 winemakers come together to follow a dream and establish Cantine San Marzano. The first bottles finally come out of the cellar, thanks to a modern bottling plant purchased with the commitment of the members. This purchase marks the transition from the commodity to the brand, from the bulk economy to the direct relationship with the end consumer.

One of life's extremely pleasant surprises.

In our house we regularly drink Primitivo. It goes so well with dishes containing tomato. We do not pay the price of this wine but decided to try it. What an excellent decision. Not that I would choose this truly outstanding wine to accompany tomato dishes. Red meat or game come to mind (we first tried it with wild boar pâté). But it is now a house favourite 'special' wine.

This primitivo wine is so smooth that it is like drinking nectar it slides down your throat leaving a sensuous taste that lingers beautifully on your tongue it is one of the best I have tasted and my friends adore it..Trust me buy some and you will agree that it is the best.

A really good example of the type

First tried this in a restaurant in Puglia just a few miles form the winery! It tasted wonderful there and has, thankfully, transported well to the UK climate! Loads of fruit as you'd expect; good to drink now but I suspect will improve further with a little more patience!

A mindful travel !

I discovered this wince in an exquisite Italian place in Accra (Ghana). I have ever since ordered it very regularly as the constant refinement and equilibrium of each bottle I drank made my dinner parties always a success.

Delicious wine

I ordered this wine at an Italian Restaurant in Mallorca and loved it. I could only find the exact wines through a Google search from Italvinus in Italy, so I ordered six bottles online. I shall be buying more!
