San Marzano, 'Talo', Malvasia Nera, Salento, Puglia, Italy
In 1962, 19 vine growers from San Marzano whose families had farmed the land for generations, combined their efforts to establish 'Cantine San Marzano'. The fusion of time-honoured tradition, passion and contemporary techniques, enables this winery to produce wines with distinctive varietal and regional characteristics while reflecting the local terroir. In the 2017 Sommelier Wine Awards, San Marzano was awarded European Producer of the Year. ‘Talo’ is the surname of one of the winegrowers that has supplied San Marzano for many years as recognition from all their hard work. This Malvasia Nera which excels in this warm climate has been aged in French oak barrels for four to six months, imparting subtle complexity. It has an intense and complex bouquet of ripe red fruits combined with hints of spice. A medium to full-bodied wine with delicious flavours of Morello cherry and vanilla notes through to a smooth finish.
