The vineyard area is approximately 100 metres above sea level, with high average temperatures and medium to low rainfall, providing excellent conditions for grape production. The soft soil layer is clayey and quite thin, with a good presence of rocks for drainage. Harvest takes place during the first few weeks of September.
Cantine San Marzano was founded in 1962 when 19 long established families came together to pull their resources and expertise. Since then members have grown to over 1200 and the focus remains solidly on quality aligned to authenticity – promoting both the individuality of local grapes and regions. Under the stewardship of winemaker Caterina Bellanova their wines are now broadly acknowledged as some of the finest in the region – duly receiving multiple awards at international competitions.
