Celebrating the year in which Cantine San Marzano was founded (1962), their 62 Riserva Primitivo di Manduria uses hand harvested grapes from this exclusive area grown in very old vineyards with red, fine textured and calcerous soils. Grapes are harvested during advanced ripening for concentration, before 15 days of fermentation, then malolactic conversion in stainless steel vats. The wine is then racked and placed in French and American oak barrels for a further 18 months of maturation. 

The result is a full wine of the deepest ruby with violet hues. Dense aromas and deep flavours of prunes, chocolate, black cherry jam and tobacco, with a fleshy palate that provides a complex finish of fresh herbs, coffee, cocoa and vanilla bean. Try with rich tomato pastas and pizzas, grilled vegetables and eggplant, or lamb curry. 

San Marzano winery is based in the same-named small town that lies right in the centre of the prestigious Primitivo di Manduria appellation - a strip of land between the seas that wash over Italy's Puglia region. Winemaking since the 1960's, San Marzano now have 120 hectares - their garden by the sea - showcasing true Mediterranean beauty.
