This wine epitomizes discovery. It’s from a lesser-known part of Italy called Salento, which is on the heel of the boot in the deep, deep south. It’s made from a rare grape called Susumaniello, and there are only 72 hectares of it planted in Italy. A native of Apulia, Susumaniello (pronounced Soo-soo-mahn-YAY-loh) means ‘the load of a donkey’. Recent DNA fingerprinting has revealed that one parent is Garganega, the esteemed white grape that makes Soave, and the other is a local red table grape! Classic deep ruby in colour, the aromas offer cherries, pomegranate and raspberries, with a savoury, mineral complexity. The flavours show similar red fruits with pleasing, soft tannins, and slightly raspy acidity. It enchants with simplicity through its fruity and spicy flavours. There is no oak used at all, which lets us sink our teeth into Susumaniello’s true nature. Toss some orecchiette with garlic-sautéed rapini, evoo, and hot chili flakes, or prepare ‘ciceri e tria’, a local dish of chickpeas and long pasta. Slurp it together with your new discovery, Susumaniello.
