The soft, clayey soils of San Marzano, Puglia characterised by the right amount of skeleton, give the autochthonous variety Primitivo the perfect conditions for ripening. The good humidity of the clay soil, combined with the natural aeration of the roots through the pebbles and rocks, organically regulate the water balance. This is the secret to making an exceptional wine, just like this Il Pumo Primitivo 2018 from Cantine San Marzano.
The Pumo Primitivo appears in the glass in a beautiful deep red, purple colour, and offers a complex bouquet on the nose, with notes of plum, cherry, spices, rosemary and vanilla. It is a wine endowed with body, softness and harmony, capable of giving a little of the warmth of its land!
A small curiosity. Il Pumo pays homage to the traditional Apulian decoration, shaped like a pine cone, that decorates the terraces and balconies of Salento and wishes good luck to passers-by. An object made of the same clay that nourishes the vines.

On an Italian strip of land between the Ioinc and the Adriatic Sea mellow vineyards arise aside romantic olive groves in the appellation, "Primitivo di Maduria". There, highly experienced Apulian vintners create elegant and full-bodied wines with good ageing potential.More about the Winery
