San Marzano 2018/19 Primitivo Puglia


In stock



94 Points Luca Maroni

San Marzano Primitivo is about as good a deal on great Italian wine as you are going to find, and it’s fantastic with BBQ ribs.

“A wine of grandiose density. Impenetrable to the eye, dense and creamy…The softness on the palate is amazing despite the sharp acidity and the thick and deep tannins… Its persuasive and spicy compote of black cherry spreads harmoniously…powerful expressive character.”

-Luca Maroni

Deep ruby red colour with violet reflections; complex bouquet with plum and cherry notes, spicy, with hints of rosemary and vanilla; a robust wine, smooth and balanced, easy to drink.

Best served with: Richly flavoured first courses, red meat, game, and hard cheese.

San Marzano is a small village in the centre of the Primitivo di Manduria DOC region, a strip of land kissed by the two seas of the Salento: the Ionian and the Adriatic. In 1962 the DOC appellation did not yet exist, and the Primitivo di Manduria was far from becoming a cult wine for wine lovers. Even so, 19 winemakers came together to follow a dream and founded Cantine San Marzano.
