2016 Susumaniello, Boccantino

2016 Susumaniello, Boccantino
ref. BOCC160 SPR20

Wine Variety: Susumaniello is a deeply coloured red grape variety of Puglia, authorised in almost every province of that region. It can produce intensely-coloured wines that can be slightly rustic in structure but it is most often blended with other local varieties such as Malvasia Nera or Negroamaro. 

Wine Region: Puglia is the long heel of Italy's boot, a flat and fertile region of Mediterranean climate. Much of Puglia is planted with table grapes but other vineyards produce fruit for vermouth production. Pretty much neck-and-neck with Sicily as Italy's second most productive wine region behind the Veneto, Puglia is responsible for a great deal of wine of average quality, but steps are being taken to promote it as a producer of quality wine. The name Puglia comes from the Latin for rainless. 

Wine Producer: Boccantino is a brand within a much larger wine-producing company based in Bolzano in northern Italy. Under the Boccantino label they bottle wines from southern Italy, as well as Sicily and Sardinia

wine tasting notesTasting Notes:

A deeply coloured wine in the glass. And then southern, sun-drenched aromas meet one's nose, with scents of earth and spice. Fruit is red and darker, of plums and blackberries, between which lurks the spice, which becomes quite peppery and laced with herbal notes. A rich thing, sweetened by Mediterranean sunshine. The earthiness of the structure keeps it from being cloying and acidity drives it forward cleanly. Needs big food, but this is really very delicious.
