Deep purple red with violet-black reflections; intense and persistent aroma, with black-currant and wild fruit scent, spicy with thyme notes. A full-bodied wine, soft and balanced, long and pleasantly flavoured in the end.

Our adventure comes to life from decades of experience of two important wine industries: the Apulian cooperative ”Cantine San Marzano” and the Abruzzi company ”Farnese Vini”; in 2003 they put together their acquisitions in the wine sector to boost the Apulia autochthonous grape varieties and produce excellent wines.
It very soon became a success, both in Italy and all around the world, thanks to a production philosophy that combines strong traditional methods in the countryside and a modern approach in the cellar. Our farmers know how to respect the rhythm of the vineyards, without forcing them, by using a heritage of agronomic practices they inherited from the past.
In order to take the best from the fruits of these extraordinary plants, we look for the best conditions to work them in the cellar, making use of modern winemaking equipment.
And at the end of their course, after much trouble and work, all our wines rest in the underground rooms of ”Cantine San Marzano”, completely dug into the rock, thermically and physically insulated, awaiting to give our consumers great emotions.
