VALLONE SUSUMANIELLO SALENTO 2015
The lesser-known Susumaniello grape is native to the Brindisi area, and possibly related to Sangiovese. It had almost disappeared, but Vallone were one of the pioneers of its rediscovery, planting 10 hectares of bush vines on their Castelserranova estate, up the coast from Brindisi. Though capable of abundant yields, ruthless crop thinning transforms the quality - Vallone’s vineyards manage just 30hl/ha.
Intense black fruit aromas lead to a ripe, spicy palate with hints of dark chocolate - all balanced by fresh acidity and lightly floral notes.
