New new new! Everything for the next couple of weeks will be new stuff and it's all fantastic. This one is a new malvasia from Italy and you won't be disappointed!

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, and the Primitivo di Manduria was far from becoming a cult wine for wine lovers. Even so, 19 winemakers came together to follow a dream and founded Cantine San Marzano.

In 1982, Francesco Cavallo was appointed Chairman of the board of directors. A fiery and visionary figure, he continues to make plans for the future, while overseeing the present of the winery. He has uninterruptedly been the true helmsman of this company.

At last, the first bottles came out of the cellar, thanks to a modern bottling plant financed by the members of the Cantine. This purchase marked the transition from commodity to brand, from the economics of bulk to the direct relationship with the end consumer.

An intense and complex bouquet of ripe red fruits combined with hints of spice. A full-bodied wine with delicious flavours of blackberry jam and vanilla notes through to a smooth finish.
