Review

A cooperative identity and meticulous quality research - seemingly in contradiction but in reality they aren't - are two cornerstones in the important wine-growing area of San Marzano. The numbers, of course, are astounding, but the quality standards applied to native grape varieties is beyond contention. Primitivo is definitely the one that has provided the winery with its greatest satisfaction, perfectly embodying the genuineness of the territory and local producers, and responding perfectly to the needs of the new uncompromising winegrowing style.

The calcareous and rocky red earth of the Sava and San Marzano region, in the Salento inland not far from the Taranto Ionic coast, are subject to a typical Mediterranean climate, with low rainfall and excellent annual temperature differences. These aspects, combined with the harvest which is never conducted before the middle of September and the long 20-day maceration period, give the marvellous Primitivo di San Marzano breadth and roundness that have made them famous and distinguishable amongst wine-lovers.

A single-variety Negroamaro wine from the San Marzano winery, Talò has a splendid purple-red colour with violet glints. It offers intense, persistent and spicy aromas of blackcurrants and other fruits of the forest accompanied by balsamic and vanilla hints. Six months’ ageing in French oak barrels brings out all the rich personality of the Negroamaro variety. Talò is a full-bodied wine, velvety and well-balanced, with a lingering flavoursome finish faithfully expressing its terroir. It pairs particularly well with rich meat-based dishes, both starters and main courses, as well as with cured cheese.
