THE SUD Salice Salentino by Catine San Marzano is a wonderful, full-bodied and balanced red wine cuvée from the Italian wine region of Puglia.
In deep ruby red with dark red reflections, this wine shines in the glass. The intense and spicy bouquet with aromas of black cherry and plum pairs with a distinct herbal note that reflects the Mediterranean climate of the growing area. On the palate, soft tannins unfold embedded in fruit aromas of dark stone fruits. The French oak is due to the well-integrated wood note, which serves as an excellent counterpart to the Mediterranean herbal aromas. The reverberation of this body-rich cuvée is long and of strong spice
Vinification of San Marzano SOUTH Salice Salentino
This cuvée brings together indigenous varieties such as the Negroamaro and Malvasia Nera grapes. Due to the reduction in yield owed to the limestone soil and the low humus layer, the grapes undergo a natural refinement process. Strong sunlight and the warm Scirocco protect against pest damage and complete the natural quality of the wines. After vinification, the cuvée is aged for 6 months in French oak.
