Serre Susumaniello Salento IGT
Whe wine "Serre" of Cantine Due Palme winery is red wine produced by 100% Susumaniello grape variety, which until a few years ago was strongly suspected of ultimate extinction.
This vine is supposed to be of Dalmatian origin, maybe its ephitat “Susumaniello” comes from “loaded as a donkey”, thanks to grape peculiarity to be particularly productive in juvenile age. In its maturity stage, about 10 years after, its productivity reduces in a considerable way. Medium-size grapes, with a very velvety blue-coloured peel, that matures in the first half of September. Susumaniello grapes are rich in sugar, with a good acidity content and they are picked by hand and macerated into horizontal rotative thermoregulated tanks for about 14 days, where the wine complete its alcoholic fermentation at a temperature never exceeding 20°C. The wine is then transferred in barriques for 6 months, where the malolactic fermentation comes to the end.
Serre Susumaniello by Cantine Due Palme has a deep ruby red colour, with blue highlights and a bouquet of ripe red berries and blackberry jam. On the palate is full bodied with a powerful structure. We suggest to serve it at 11-12 °C.
