Estate: San Salvatore was founded in 1988 by Giuseppe Pagano. The estate is located in the middle of the Cilento National Park, near Paestum, in the Campania region of southern Italy. The area is known for its ancient Greek ruins, rich biodiversity and over 2000 years of grape cultivation. Of the estate’s 110 hectares, the majority is devoted to vegetable farming and woodlands. Vineyards comprise 22.5 hectares, along with 10 hectares of olive groves. The estate is certified organic and uses biodynamic methods. The water buffalo that roam the property are the sole source of fertilizer used on the vines, [they provide milk for mozzarella production]. Solar powers the winery.
Winemaking: From a 10 year old vineyard with calcareous clay soil at 150-210 meters in elevation. Grapes are gently pressed, followed by fermentation with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel tanks.
Tasting Notes: Pale pink/coral in colour, with faint aromas of citrus blossom and red berries. Delicate pink grapefruit, cranberry , cherry and watermelon are glossed by fresh acidity. Juicy pink grapefruit accents the crisp finish. Airy, silky and very gluggable.
