2015 San Marzano Primitivo di Manduria ‘Anniversario 62’

In 1962, 19 grower/winemakers banded together to create Cantina San Marzano, in the Salento region of Puglia. Intent on changing the perception of Puglia= plonk, they pledged to create wines of grace, concentration, and complexity. Which they definitely did. But with 62 Anniversario, created to celebrate the founders and to showcase their very best grapes and winemaking, they blew past those goals into a completely different dimension. The oldest vines (60 to well over 100 years old) of Primitivo, a close cousin of our own Zinfandel, with some of the same brambly goodness Zin does so well. The best vineyards. Hand-picked. Macerated 18-20 days on their skins. Fermented with native yeasts, then aged 18 months in new French and American oak. The result is stunning: complex, layered flavors of plum, black cherry jam, tobacco, bittersweet cocoa, and exotic spices. Big, bold, ripe, rich. The ultimate Father's Day grilling partner.
