Susumaniello is a red grape from Puglia, cultivated especially in Salento and above all in Brindisi province. The name "Susumaniello" comes from "Somarello" that means "Little Donkey" as it is very productive during its first 10 years.
Ruby red with purplish shimmer, on the nose it presents a distinct red berries aroma, from raspberry, sour cherry, to blackcurrant, followed by liquorices, rhubarb and rawhide leather. On the mouth it tastes soft with a good fatness, very elegant and well balanced by a tannins party. The long finish on the palate shows a touch of acidity and a great freshness.
