San Marzano Il Pumo Sauvignon/Malvasia Salento 2020
This Gold-medal-winning Italian 50/50 blend is full of Southern Italian sunshine, with peach, tropical and orange zest flavours balanced by surprising freshness.
This 50/50 blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Malvasia from San Marzano is full of Southern Italian sunshine, with peach, tropical and orange zest flavours balanced by suprising freshness. A light and lively style at only 12.5% abv, this is a wonderfully easy-drinking Spring or Summer wine, match with salads, grilled white fish and light pasta dishes.
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 Malvasia, while being very well-priced, making these perfect weekday wines.
