San Marzano Cinquanta Collezione is a big and fleshy wine full of chocolate and spice flavours, smooth and very long. A blend of Negroamaro and Primitivo, the wine is ruby red with purple reflections, and has an intense and complex bouquet with fruity notes of prune, vanilla and liqorice.
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.
