San Marzano is a small town in the centre of the Primitivo di Manduria DOP, a strip of land between the seas that wash over the Puglia region. It was here that 19 winegrowers founded Cantine San Marzano in 1962. Long before the appellation of origin was created and Primitivo di Manduria was recognised worldwide, they were chasing a dream.
In 1996, The commitment and dedication of the members allowed the purchase of a modern bottling plant. The first bottles came out of the cellar, triggering the transition from commodity to brand. From bulk economy to a direct relationship with the end consumer.
Since then, the company has been dedicate to the expression of a thousand-year relationship between their people and the local grape cultivars, such as Primitivo or Negroamaro – and changing the perception of Puglian wines throughout the world in its best expressions.
Created ‘between the seas’ (in Italian, “Tra I Mari”) Tramari Rosé is an elegant and light rosé, sophisticated yet casual, born in the sunshine of the Salento summers. Our flowers and a saline note on the palate that bring us back to the jagged and sandy coast. Made entirely from Primitivo grapes. Soft pink, hints of cherry and raspberry.
As part of the TramArt project that unites Art and Wine, Tramari dresses up with designer labels made from original works of art to create exclusive limited editions of the product.

This salmon-pink rosato of Primitivo is all hibiscus tea on the nose, with lemon peel and cherry candy that follow on the palate. There, they are joined by sour cherries but also some savory, tannic notes that bring out a grassy, earthiness against the spine of acid.
