Primitivo di Manduria Sessantanni is a rich, full-bodied Italian red, with an ample and complex fruity fragrance of plum, cherry jam and tobacco, soft and rich in tannins, with a finish that offers notes of cocoa, coffee and vanilla. The wine is aged for 12 months in French and American oak barriques.

In 1962, 19 vine growers from San Marzano, in the Italian region of Apulia, combined their efforts to establish the “Cantine San Marzano” co-operative cellar. Through the decades this co-operative has grown significantly, attracting over 1200 vine growers, using modern techniques and producing elegant wines, without forgetting their ancient Apulian wine tradition. Talo is the surname of one of the winegrowers that has supplied San Marzano for years.
Nowadays the melding of time honoured tradition, passion and sensibility with contemporary techniques enables the winery to produce wines with distinctive varietal and regional character.
The winery is 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.
