2017 Sessantanni ’60’ Primitivo di Manduria
Region: Puglia, Italy
Winemaker: Francesco Cavallo (president of the Cantine San Marzano)
Winery Established Date: 1962
The hand-picked grapes come from 60 year old vines which explains the name, because Sessantanni stands for “of sixty year olds”. The result is much lower yields that give excellent intensity to the wine. The warm Scirocco winds blow from North Africa and clearly shapes the climate of the vineyards of the Cantine San Marzano in southern Italy.
The Sessantanni Primitivo di Manduria of the Cantine San Marzano is a pure Primitivo with a deep ruby red in the glass. The nose reveals aromas of prunes, cherry jam and sweet spices such as cloves, cinnamon and vanilla. On the palate, the Sessantanni is well structured, full and fleshy with a wonderfully integrated acidity and soft tannins. In the impressively long finish of this red wine, berry and fruit aromas, spicy and tobacco notes come to the fore again.
Terroir in the glass. Great addition to your wine collection. Full body and in all aspects, with a continuous evolutions of flavours in every sip. Let your palate indulge with rich meat dishes or braised game, and pair the Sessantanni with it. The success is guarantee. Salute!
