Talò Primitivo di Manduria DOP 2020
medium clayey mixture, shallow and with good presence of skeleton
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.

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 Primitivo di Manduria DOP, as per disciplinary, Primitivo in purity. From grapes grown not far from the sea, a full-bodied red wine where you can perceive minerality and balsamicity, as well as the elegance of the tannin and the explosion of fragrant red fruit, typical of the best known varietal of Puglia in the world.
Ruby red color enriched by violet reflections, opulent bouquet reminiscent of ripe cherries and plums with pleasant notes of cocoa and vanilla. A wine of remarkable structure, softened by the persuasive warmth of Primitivo, which ends in notes of long sweetness.
