Deep ruby red in the glass with ample and complex fruity aromas underpinned with hints of plum, cherry jam and tobacco. This 100% Primitivo is full-bodied wine yet rounded off with soft and rich tannins. The finish is lengthy offering notes of cocoa, coffee and vanilla.

Buy any San Marzano product this July and go in the draw to win tickets to Vino Italiano presented by Sapori!*
It's an afternoon of tasting through Italian wines on Sat 31st August.
San Marzano is a small village in the heart of the Primitivo di Manduria DOC region. It was in 1962 that 19 winemakers came together and founded Cantine San Marzano in an area that wasn't at that time a DOC region but would soon be.
It wasn't until 1996 that the first bottles came out the cellar and this started a new chapter for San Marzano as they began to reach the end consumer.
To this day San Marzano embody the collision of tradition and contemporary winemaking. They are driven to "make a wine just like the one of our fathers did," and they achieve this by producing wines that are a celebration of viticulture and the history of the land.
