San Marzano 'Il Pumo', Salice Salentino 2017
A delicious example of Salice Salentino with savoury plum and spicy notes
An intense bouquet of cherry, savoury plum and spicy notes combined with an attractive hint of Mediterranean herbs. Full bodied with a generous flavour and a pleasantly fresh finish.
San Marzano was established back in 1962 when 19 family vine growers joined to combine their resources and expertise, with the aim to produce wines which reflect the region, while embracing modern winery practices. They are now one of the most highly regarded cooperatives in Southern Italy - highlighted when they were awarded European Producer of the Year at the Sommelier Wine Awards 2017, with trained biologist Caterina Bellanova at the helm. We think the quality across the range is excellent, and they offer great expressions of local grapes such as Negroamaro and Primitivo, while being very well-priced, making these perfect weekday wines.
