Description

San Marzano Anniversario 62 is an old vine Primitivo from head-trained bush vines at least sixty years old. An elegant ruby red in colour, this red delivers intense and complex fruity aromas of plum, cherry and a hint of tobacco and spiced notes. A full-bodied wine presenting smooth and rich tannins to give its velvety texture. The finish is persistent with notes of vanilla, cocoa and coffee.

In 1962, 19 vine growers from the small town of 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 and technologically advanced vinification techniques they produce elegant wines that pay homage to the ancient Apulian wine traditions. The fusion of time honoured tradition, passion and contemporary techniques, enables this winery to produce wines with distinctive varietal and regional characteristics while reflecting the local terroir. In 2021, San Marzano was awarded the ‘Cooperative Winery of the Year Award’ by Gambero Rosso.
