San Marzano Vindoro Negroamaro 2017

The Vindoro Negroamaro has to be one of the best Italian red wines I have ever had the luxury of drinking. Instantly recognisable by the heavy bottle this is a beast of a wine that has amazing elegance and finesse. The flavours are bold and refined and full of spice, jammy and soft fruit characters. I recommend decanting this wine for an hour before serving to really let the aromas develop so the wine can show it's true potential.

In the heart of d.o.p. Primitivo di Manduria and Mediterranean terroir, Cantine San Marzano has settled in Apulia, Italy. The cantine was established in 1962 by 19 vine growers whose families had farmed the area for generations. It has evolved with the years while maintaining its loyalty to traditional Apulian winemaking. Now the co-operative consists of over 1000 wine growers of the Puglia region. San Marzano wines are elegant and offer a wide variation of appeal, from red to white to rosé, sparkling and not. Prior to 2013, they were known as Lucarelli, but they have since re branded and become a world-renowned name in winemaking with many awards. They have won wine awards in China and Japan as well as in Italy, both nationally and internationally.

Tasting Note - Very deep purple red, wide and complex bouquet with notes of spices, soft fruit and cherry jam. A full-bodied wine, soft and balanced, rich in fine tannins, with a pleasantly long lasting finish.

Vineyard note - The Negroamaro grapes are grown at premium vineyards which are located between San Marzano and Francavilla Fontana. These vineyards enjoy high temperatures all year round, with very little rain fall and a wide temperature range between day and night This has a huge impact on the quality of the fruit produced.

Soil - The soil of these selected vineyards is mostly terra rossa, with a fine texture and a generally calcerous under ground with a few emerging rocks. The well-known redness of this soil, is due to the high presence of iron oxide which also benefits the final flavours of this red wine.

Viticulture - The harvest took place during the last week of September. Grapes were hand harvested in small baskets, to preserve the quality of the fruit.

Vinification - Maceration for 18 days on 80% of the must, 25 days on the remaining 20%. Thermo-controlled alcoholic fermentation with autochthonous yeasts at 24C. The wine was then aged in French and Caucasian oak barrels for 12 months.

Grapes - Negroamaro 100%

Food match - The Vindoro Negroamaro from San Marzano is ideal with savoury first courses, red meat, game and pecorino cheese.

Awards - Decanter World Wine Awards, Commended, 2015; International Wine & Spirit Challenge, Silver, 2015; International Wine Challenge, Bronze, 2015; Sommelier Wine Awards, Silver, 2015; The WineMerchant, Winner Top 100, 2015

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
