An unexpected as well as pleasant classic method signed Cantine San Marzano, the Lime already at the first taste is appreciated for the elegance and finesse of floral and fruity scents where citrus and tropical notes stand out.
The San Marzano cellars represent a significant reality in Apulian viticulture, contributing to the affirmation of local wines in the national and international market. It all began in 1962 when 19 winemakers gathered to share resources and experiences to meet the challenge of the then continuously developing world of wine. Today the cooperative has 1200 members and 1500 hectares of vineyards in the hinterland of Taranto and in Salento. The wines it produces testify to the great respect for its land and its traditions, but with an eye always looking forward in knowing how to interpret technological development always in favor of the best sustainable quality. The attention to the preservation and enhancement of the old sapling vines, has conveyed the production largely towards Primitivo and Negroamaro, while not neglecting other Apulian vines such as Malvasia Nera del Salento, Verdeca or the same international grapes Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot that have adapted well in Puglia.
The Calce Metodo Classico San Marzano derives from Chardonnay grapes grown in espalier in particularly suitable hilly areas. Only free-run must is used for this classic method with it remains on the lees for at least 36 months.
The Calce Metodo Classico San Marzano csi has an intense straw yellow color tending to golden made brilliant by the remarkably fine and persistent perlage. Intense and complex nose, of fine quality and marked elegance; the unmistakable notes of the varietal stand out, such as broom flowers, exotic fruit and candied citrus; in the background a distinct fragrance due to the long aging on the lees. An acid-savory note accompanies the whole sip, strengthened by the slight pungency of the bubbles and balanced by a certain softness. The result is a product that is easy to combine and approach with good pleasure and great drinkability.
