Origin

Sava is a town in Puglia, the heel of Italy. Nearby is the town of Manduria which gives its name to the regional wine, famous for its old (often over 100 year old) bush vines. The climate is characterised by high average temperatures with hot summers, contrasted with cool nights which helps to lengthen the ripening process.

Grape Variety

100% Primitivo.

Many believe Primitivo to be the same grape as Zinfandel in California. Hand harvested grapes - from up to 100 year old vines - are macerated for 18-25 days. Fermentation at controlled temperatures takes place in stainless steel tanks, before maturation for at least 6 months in French oak and a further 12 months in the bottle prior to release.

Alcohol Percentage

14.5%

Celler Potential

Drink now and over the next 4 years.

Producer

Cantine San Marzano was established in 1962 when 19 vine growers established this cooperative, which today attracts over 1200 of them! This creates a unique blend of modern and traditional wine making practices.

Food Match

White cheeses, good game, or the richest stew in the recipe book.
