Monumental value to be had with this wine. In fact, you will struggle to find an Australian wine with this much flavour and character, and for such a sharp price.
Sourced from Salento in Puglia, this predominantly Sangiovese lead blend is robust, viscous and powerfully aromatic with red fruits, dried cherry, plums and dried herbs. Load up on this one, its value is off the hook.
Wonderfully rustic and red cherry flavours, with dried herbs and a juicy, structured palate.
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. Even so, 19 winemakers came together to follow a dream and founded Cantine San Marzano. However, it wasn't until 1996 and the introduction of a new bottling plant that San Marzano wines could move from commodity to brand. With the growth of the brand and company, San Marzano set themselves a goal: 'To make a wine just like the one our fathers did and make it original and contemporary.' This was to be the Sessantanni Primitivo di Manduria DOP, one of the iconic labels of the company, and one which embodies the essence of the San Marzano philosophy. Today the collective continues to flourish with the aquisition of new vineyards and opportunities to explore.
