Area: Puglia/ Apulia
In San Marzano, the history of viticulture is more than a thousand years old and can be seen in its oldest vineyards, which are rich in centuries-old clones. From this precious heritage of vineyards that are more than sixty years old comes a wine that is the most beautiful story our territory has to tell.
Vine variety: Primitivo Di Manduria
Area: Very old vineyards selected in the area of San Marzano (TA) and Sava (TA).
Soil: Finely textured residual red soil with a calcareous subsoil, sparse rocky outcrops and intense presence of iron oxides.
Farming type: Head-trained bush vines at least sixty years old (5,000 per hectare).
Grape harvest: Second half of September.
Vinification: Very ripe grapes are harvested manually. The maceration takes place for 18 days on 80% of the mass and for 25 days on 20%, with native yeasts selected in the vineyard. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 24-26 °C.
Ageing: In French and American oak barriques for 12 months.
