TERRITORY
Salento is identified by three climatic elements: the sun, the creator of generous sugar levels, the sea, responsible for the
minerality of the wines, and the wind that makes this territory naturally free of diseases and particularly suitable for the
production of "natural" wines.

Characterized by extensive flat areas and modest hills, Salento is geologically made up of a medium-textured limestone
structure.


GRAPES
Susumaniello, a native black grape variety from Puglia, grown in Salento. Its name recalls, in the Apulian dialect, the name
of the "donkey" indicating the ancient tradition of increasing the productivity of the plant by loading it with bunches "like a
donkey". After the first decade of life of the vineyard, the bunch is discharged of grapes and production loses in quantity but
improves in quality producing wines of great expression.


WINE
Soft pressing to preserve the fruity and floral taste at low temperatures with short contact of the must with the skins for
about 10 - 12 hours. Follow about two weeks of slow fermentation at controlled temperature in steel tanks in which the
refinement is completed.

After three months at rest in steel, it is bottled.
