Review

Visellio is an intense and powerful Primitivo, with great extractive strength. An authentic champion of Apulian oenology evolved into barrique, with great softness and long persistence.

Impenetrable and brilliant ruby. The nose expresses a range of aromas and sensations of a finesse that are difficult to overcome, which opens up evoking hints of plums in alcohol, currants and blueberries in jam, cloves and nutmeg, which keep pace and alternate with hints of star anise , violet and licorice.

Energetic and fascinating at the same time, seductive in temperament and vitality, fresh even in the powerful manifestation of the fruit, the sip finds its balance in the mature and silky tannins and in the calibrated acid component. Try it with tasty and structured dishes such as eggplant rolls, baked lasagna, stewed venison and game in general. He loves hard, seasoned and savory cheeses.

Tenute Rubino

Tenute Rubino

It was Luigi Rubino, in the nineties, who completely rediscovered Susumaniello, placed at the centre of a dual project: to enhance it in its best habitats, identifying crus in which to grow it as a single vineyard, and let it express itself over time. Oltremé, the simplest, stays 10 months in steel, while Torre Testa, the great selection, rests 6 months in steel, one year in barrique and another year in bottle.
