Big plum fruit and quite a slug of dried-sage and other herbal notes, plus the generous and richly textured body, made a bold statement. The full, supple tannins place an exclamation mark at the finish. Drink now."

San SalvatoreView all from San Salvatore
San Salvatore is located in the midst of the Cilento National Park, near Paestum, Stio and Giungano, in the Campania region of southern Italy. This mountainous region has a high level of biodiversity and the soil is rich in minerals. The influence of the nearby sea and ideal sun exposure help to create an ideal microclimate for viticulture.
Deeply committed to preserving the delicate balance of the land, San Salvatore takes a special interest in cultivating the vineyards without synthetic products or genetically modified organisms and uses biological processes and biodynamic preparations like horn dung that favor the natural fertility of the ground and the production of humus. Vines are also protected from pest and disease with the careful use of copper and sulfur.
All of San Salvatore's fertilizers are created in-house using natural methods. For example, fertilizers are developed in an integrated biodynamic cycle of complete recovery of the dung of the locally fed water buffaloes that live on the property. The animals naturally combine straw and manure with their clogs and encourage the production of a healthy and highly nourishing organic fertilizer. San Salvatore also has a photovoltaic plant with an electrical power of 96KW that reduces CO2 pollution and is in accordance with the UNI ISO 14064 law.
