Talò Verdeca Apulia PGI 2020
Shallow and medium-fine textured
In 1962, in San Marzano, a small town in the center of the Primitivo di Manduria PDO, a strip of land between the seas that bathe Apulia, 19 winemakers founded Cantine San Marzano. All this well before the denomination of origin was born and the Primitivo di Manduria was recognized in the world.
1982: PRIMUS INTER PARES
Francesco Cavallo is appointed President of the Board of Directors. A volcanic and visionary personality, he is the helmsman of our company. Forty years of uninterrupted presidency, planning the future and supervising the present of the winery.
1996: THE FIRST BOTTLES
Commitment and dedication of members allow the purchase of a modern bottling plant. The first bottles come out from the cellar, starting the passage from commodity to brand. From the economy of bulk to the direct relationship with the final consumer.
2000: SIXTY YEARS
San Marzano's iconic label, it encapsulates its philosophy and essence. Produced from grapes grown in old vineyards, it is an expression of the age-old relationship between our people and the Primitivo grape. Sessantanni Primitivo di Manduria DOP is the label that changed the perception of Apulian wines in the world.
Our garden by the sea. 120 hectares dominated by a 16th century Masseria that can be seen walking through the endless rows of vines, the expanses of shrubs and fields of fruit trees. A place of work and production, a laboratory of sustainability in continuous evolution. An ideal theater of sharing and Mediterranean beauty, a distillation of the experience that San Marzano offers the world.
Talò Verdeca Puglia IGP, only Verdeca aged in French oak barrels to soften the renowned acidity of this green-skinned indigenous grape variety that has been among the white wines of Puglia for at least four centuries.
Straw yellow color with golden hues; on the nose it reveals surprising aromas of white flowers and vanilla; on the palate it is fresh and rightly mineral with a good savory persistence.
1-3 years old
Cold pre-maceration for 6/8 hours, completion of alcoholic fermentation in French oak barrels
