The soft, clayey soils of San Marzano, Puglia, 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 like Il Pumo Primitivo 2018 from Cantine San Marzano.
Pumo Primitivo 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 a traditional Apulian decoration, shaped like a pine cone, that decorates the terraces and balconies of Salento and wishes good luck to passers-by. This object is made of the same clay that nourishes the vines.

How to serve
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.More about the Winery
