Imported from nearby Dalmatia, Susumaniello is one of the most important indigenous grape varieties of Brindisi. Its name (there are several theories) is due to the fact that, at a young age, in not recent times, the Susumaniello plant was particularly productive, so much so that it was overloaded with bunches as if it were a donkey. The name Verso Sud indicates the position of the vineyards, located in the southernmost area of the Ítria Valley, arriving in the province of Brindisi. Verso Sud Susumaniello has an intense ruby red color, with violet reflections when young that tend to garnet with aging, with a persistent aroma with hints of blackberry and cherry and sweet toasted notes. The flavor is soft, harmonious, long finish. Red ‘Clássico’, ideal to accompany red meats, roasts, game. Excellent with aged cheeses, cured meats, sauces and parmesan. A very decent and great value alternative to the more northerly Amarone style of wine.
