2015 Masseria Li Veli Susumaniello Salento Askos IGP

A rare Italian grape, this Susumaniello is a blockbuster red!

Description

Part of the winery's ASKOS range, which seeks to reinvigorate ancient grape varieties that are perilously close to extinction. Susumaniello is mainly grown around the heel of Italy, the Salento IGT, and thrives as old bush vines planted in an ancient layout known as the settonce. The grape has a very close genetic relationship to Sangiovese, crossed with another as yet unidentified grape, although this particular Susumaniello is much riper and richer style than any Sangiovese you'll taste.

Smells

A ripe, dark and brooding style of wine, with prunes, vanilla, blackberry, leather, graphite and damson plum.

Tastes

Opulent, silky and spicy, with dark chocolatey flavours, ripe black cherry and cola nut, this is a luxurious red wine with soft, plush tannins that will be at its best between now and 2022.
