4 gold medals plus Greatest Wine of Italy by Luca Maroni
Just when you thought San Marzano can’t keep up the quality of this wine for ever their team has come up with another brilliant effort. 
The grapes for Anniversario 62 Riserva were hand-harvested and aged for 18 months in combination of French and American oak barrels. Luca Maroni, wine writer and educator, scored it one point higher than the heralded 2013 vintage.
The 2014 San Marzano Anniversario 62 is intense ruby red, showing wide range of flavours on the nose including prunes and cherry jams with notes of spice and tobacco. The palate is full-bodied with soft, rich tannins blending beautifully with notes of cocoa, coffee and vanilla to produce a lasting experience.Have it with red meat or game now or cellar over next 5-6 years.
In  1962  19  vine  growers  from  San  Marzano,  whose families   had   farmed   the   land   for   generations, combined   their   efforts   to   establish   “Cantine   San Marzano”.

Through the decades this coooperative has grown significantly, attracting over 1200 vine growers, using  modern  and  technologically  advanced  plants and  producing  elegant  wines  without  forgetting  the obligation to the very old Apulian wine tradition.

Nowadays the melding of  time  honoured  tradition,  passion  and  sensibility with contemporary techniques enables us to produce wines     with     distinctive     varietal     and     regional characters, marvellously reflecting individual attention, seasonal variation and local terroir.

 In Apulia, in the heart of the acclaimed d.o.p. “Primitivo di Manduria” area, a strip of land between two seas, the Ionian and the Adriatic; countries and landscapes in the province of Taranto and Brindisi where vines and olive trees flourish side by side on a red soil surface.

The vineyard’s soils and the Mediterranean terroir play a fundamental role in the production of high quality wines. Our region climate is extreme, the condition difficult since life stands the drought, the frost and the sirocco winds. But in the hands of our passionate winemakers even the fruits of our oldest bush vines become full-bodied and elegant wines, capable of considering ageing. Wines that can enrich the tasting experience beyond the most ambitious expectations.
