Susumaniello, poet of the Apulian vineyards, paints a robust and enveloping story with clusters laden with light. Its name, a dialectal whisper translating to “little donkey,” reveals its curved and mysterious nature. In the warm embrace of the sun, Susumaniello grows patiently, unveiling a subtle plot that imparts wines with enveloping depth. On the nose, Susumaniello speaks of dark fruits and underscored spices, while in the mouth, it expresses itself with a dance of vigorous tannins and lively freshness. A perfect accompaniment to succulent roasts and aged cheeses, this wine unfolds as an unembellished tale woven with the culinary roots of Puglia. In a wide glass, it opens like a rustic poem, an ode to the land and passion, avoiding excess sentimentality.
