• "Collezione Cinquanta +3" Vino Rosso d'Italia s.a.

      “Collezione Cinquanta +3” Vino Rosso d’Italia s.a.

      Cinquanta+ (fifty+) or in this case rather fifty/fifty, because it consists of equal parts of the varieties Primitivo and Negroamaro. Concentrated ruby garnet, opulent fragrance of overripe dark fruit and sweet oak barrel, very substantial texture on the palate. There is nothing subtle about this drop; just full throttle from start to finish. And a powerful drinking pleasure! SUPERIORE.DE

    • "F" Negroamaro di Salento IGP 2017

      “F” Negroamaro di Salento IGP 2017

      Negroamaro "F" stands for Falò (bonfire). And that's him! Black-red hue, surprising intensity of aromatic richness, ripe black berries, cherry jam, thyme, dark chocolate and cocoa. Also on the palate very dense and full-bodied with silky tannin and a very long aromatic finish. SUPERIORE.DE

    • "Anniversario 62" Primitivo di Manduria Riserva DOP 2016

      “Anniversario 62” Primitivo di Manduria Riserva DOP 2016

      "Anniversario 62" delights all senses... Deep dark colour, highly appetising bouquet with aromas of pomegranate, black currant and a hint of cocoa butter. The palate is enveloped by an expressive fruit in pure harmony and fullness, fine tannin and silky texture. The grapes from very old vines and the additional six months of maturation in barriques give the Primitivo Riserva incredible density, expressiveness and depth. A parade wine for all those who like it richer in extract! SUPERIORE.DE

    • "Sessantanni" Primitivo di Manduria DOP 2016

      “Sessantanni” Primitivo di Manduria DOP 2016

      Sessantanni (60 years old) comes from vines that are at least as old and impresses with a deep garnet red and visibly high concentration. The bouquet reminds of a rum pot, beautiful with primary and secondary aromas of black fruits and woody spice. The palate is dense, smooth, jammy and with soft tannin. Long and sweet in the aftertaste. Unique in its opulence and density and undoubtedly one of the most popular Red Apulia. SUPERIORE.DE

    About the winemakers
    Cantina San Marzano
    Puglia
    Cantina San Marzano

    It is not a classic château or romantic winery, but after the separation from its long-standing cooperation partner Farnese, it is to become the showpiece cooperative of Apulia. The Cantine San Marzano, located near the town of San Marzano di San Giuseppe, is the result of the merger of 19 regional families who have been growing wine on the land between the Adriatic and Ionian Seas for generations. With their great passion, they have given the Apulian wine an independent profile and recognition in the wine world, without denying the old Salento wine tradition dating back more than 3,000 years. With around 1,200 winegrowers cultivating around 1,500 hectares of vineyards, the cooperative is an important economic factor in the southern Italian region, which is otherwise not blessed with prosperity. At the Cantine San Marzano, under the management of Mauro di Maggio, with a great deal of experience and expertise, inexpensive, modern, elegant wines of various quality levels are produced from authentic grape varieties, about four fifths of which are exported abroad.

    The climatic conditions around San Marzano are quite demanding, as the southern part of Apulia has to struggle with drought, frost and the Scirocco. Because of the warm and dry wind from Africa, the vines of the winegrowing community coordinated by Salvatore Ricchiardi are hardly affected by insects and fungi. Since the red soils in the province of Taranto, which contain iron oxides and are mostly calcareous, are low in nutrients and humus, the yields in the vineyards are naturally limited. The vineyards are mainly planted with red and white indigenous plants such as Fiano, Verdeca, Malvasia Nera, Negroamaro and Primitivo. The large stocks of very old Primitivo vines are extremely valuable. At 3,000 kilograms per hectare, they are particularly low in yield and deliver the grapes for the top-quality wine produced by the inspired cellarmaster Mario Ercolino. 'Sessantanni'. The noble wine has among other things 2009 the International Wine & Spirit Competition in London in the category 'Best pure red wine in the world' won.

    San Marzano not only impresses with its excellent grape quality, but after extensive renovation and major investments it is today the most modern and technically best equipped winery in Apulia. It is led by a highly motivated team. It consists of qualified oenologists and agronomists who have the ambition to produce the best Apulian wines in the long run. Every step of the production process - from vineyard to bottling - is carefully controlled and documented in order to continuously improve the quality of the wide range. SUPERIORE.DE
