Cantine San Marzano epitomises a unique manner of interpreting wine in Apulia, which finds its roots in two main values: respect for tradition and modernity. At Vinitaly 2017 Cantine San Marzano presents a selection of its best wines and new vintages, celebrating the authentic connection with its territory: Salento, in the Southern of Apulia (Italy), where Primitivo and the other indigenous grape varieties find the ideal soil and climate conditions to best express the local scents, flavours and culture. Over the years, San Marzano has been able to produce world-class wines by combining respect for a thousand-year long tradition with a drive for continuous research. Pad 11, stand D5 Among the big red wines, there is the renowed Sessantanni Primitivo di Manduria DOP 2013: an iconic label and a modern wine, which is produced from 60 year old bush vines. San Marzano has been working to interpret indigenous grape varieties with a contemporary approach, to deliver clean and elegant tastes. Edda Bianco Salento IGP epitomises this approach, being the turning point for its white wine production: a blend of Chardonnay (80%), Moscatello Selvatico (15%) and Fiano (5%), whose new vintage 2016 will be exclusively tasted at Vinitaly. The Italian fair will be also the occasion to present Tramari Rosé di Primitivo Salento IGP 2016: an elegant and delicate rosé wine, launched in 2015 and obtained from Primitivo grapes. It carries along the light and the winds of the Apulian summers, between the two seas of Salento, the Ionian and the Adriatic.
