Susumaniello is one of the rarest grapes grown in all of Italy. It is grown almost exclusively in Salice Salentino and the areas surrounding Brindisi, in Southern Italy’s Puglia region. Classic Susumaniello has a deep ruby hue and aromas of red berries and plums. The more concentrated version, such as this Pietra, has peppery notes as well as dark chocolate.
Warm, soft, and enveloping with an initial hint of astringency.
Pasta with meat ragu and grilled meats such as oven-baked lamb with potatoes.
