Discover More About Our Products

Did you know that Primitivo takes its name from the early ripening that characterises this grape variety?

Sessantanni Primitivo di Manduria is one of the flagship products of Cantina San Marzano. Produced from ancient alberello vines over 60 years old, this wine originates in the municipalities of San Marzano and Sava, in the torrid heat of Puglia.

Deep ruby red in colour, Sessantanni is a wine that releases powerful fruity (cherry, plum) and spicy aromas. Once tasted, one realises its full-bodiedness and the richness of its noble tannins, ending in a very long finish with notes of coffee, vanilla and cocoa. Ideal with rich red meat and game dishes, it is also excellent as a meditation wine.

San Marzano

San Marzano is a leading wine producer from the region of Puglia, in the heel of Italy’s boot. The story began in 1962, when 19 vine growers from the village of San Marzano, whose families had farmed the land for generations, came together to follow their dream and founded Cantine San Marzano. Throughout the decades it has grown significantly and now attracts over 1,200 top-quality vine growers.

Feudi di San Marzano Primitivo di Manduria Sessantanni 2017

4 /5

In 1962 bundelden 19 wijnboeren uit San Marzano hun krachten en richten zo "Cantine San Marzano"op. Tegenwoordig telt deze coöperatie meer dan 1200 telers en maakt het gebruik van moderne en technologisch geavanceerde installaties zonder afbreuk te doen aan de zeer oude wijntraditie van Puglia. San Marzano ligt in Puglia, in het hart van de veelgeprezen DOC "Primitivo di Manduria", tussen twee zeeën (Ionische en de Adriatische Zee). De provincies Taranto en Brindisi bieden een landschap waar wijngaarden en olijfbomen zij aan zij groeien op een rode ondergrond. Deze bodem en de Middellandse Zee terroir spelen een essentiële rol in de productie van hoogwaardige wijnen. Het klimaat is extreem, met moeilijke omstandigheden:droogte, vorst, Sirocco wind. Toch zorgen deze gepassioneerde wijnmakers ervoor dat zelfs druiven uit de oudste wijngaarden volle en elegante wijnen opleveren.

Denna 2017 verkade god. En röd för att dricka med denna person.
Färgen var ganska mörkröd. Dominerande doft av svarta vinbär. Mjukare än 2017.

O melhor vinho da família de Cantine San Marzano.
De cor vermelho intenso e reflexos púrpura. Bons aromas de frutas vermelhas de San Marzano Sessantanni 60 Old Vines Primitivo di Manduria. Um tinto bastante adstringente.
Acompanhei-o com caras de bacalhau. Muito bem.
