Fresh, dry, white wine with an aroma of dried peaches; this is a full flavoured and fruity wine with a subtle hint of tropical fruits on the palate.
In 1962, 19 vine growers from San Marzano, whose families had farmed the land for generations, combined their efforts to establish 'Cantine San Marzano'. Through the decades this coooperative has grown significantly, attracting over 1200 vine growers, using modern and technologically advanced plants and producing elegant wines without forgetting the obligation to the very old Apulian wine tradition. Nowadays the melding of time honoured tradition, passion and sensibility with contemporary techniques enables this winery to produce wines with distinctive varietal and regional characters, marvellously reflecting individual attention, seasonal variation and local terroir.
Soft soil layer with a fine texture.
Vineyards in San Marzano, Salento, Puglia. The area is about 100 meters above sea level and benefits from great diurnal temperature variations.
Pre-fermentation cold maceration for 6/8 hours, followed by the alcoholic fermentation in French oak barrels. Aged in French oak barrels for three months with periodic bâtonnage.
Best served with seafood, shellfish and boiled fish dishes with light sauces.

A reorder of wines previously ordered. To be honest I don't drink wine very often maybe a couple of bottles a month. But these wines were great. Very quick delivery, well packaged.
