Susumaniello del Salento IGT
Susumaniello is a little-known red-wine grape from Puglia, southern Italy. Grown almost exclusively in the Salice Salento area, and in a tiny number of vineyards around Brindisi, it ranks among the world's rarest wine grapes.
The Susumaniello berry is black, medium, spheroid with waxy, medium thick but not very consistent, bluish skin. The bunch is medium, pyramidal, composed, elongated and compact with a medium, pentagonal, five lobed leaf.
Susumaniello grape produces intense ruby red wine with a high alcohol content, with a fruity and vegetal nose. The palate is full, good tannins and acidity suited to ageing.
