Purplish ruby red colour. Very evident scents of ripe cherry and red berries. The flavour is deep, full and harmonious, with a persistent finish that lingers on the palate, ending with a hint of almond. Excellent, balanced, fragrant and very easy to drink, it accompanies pasta dishes, red and white meats, cheeses and cured meats.
Susumaniello is a grape variety that has a withdrawn character. That is why it is called “Susco”, which translates into “shy” in the local dialect. The distinctive high-youthful yield of the vine drastically drops as the plant ages. Due to its low productivity when old, it had been set aside in the past but lately it has been revaluated for single variety wines. It gives wines a lively colour, complex bouquet and elegant tannins.
“Clean black fruit with some fresh tobacco on the nose, following through to the palate, where it takes on a fresh-orange note, too. Medium-bodied and super clean with well-integrated tannins. Delicious now.” James Suckling 91/100 (Vintage 2018)
