In the shadow of giants with a rematch in the heart

Between commercial and moral redemption stories popular sayings, a story with a happy ending accompanies the vine that gives birth to the wine tasting today. Susumaniello (name whose origin is uncertain) was considered a "nano" among the giants of viticulture, wine from Puglia. His lack of consideration, combined with extremely high yields, elected him a secondary grape, whose grapes could be exported North farms to produce filtered.  In short, the habits of consumers in recent decades had relegated this variety to be largely abandoned by most manufacturers. However, as the happy ending stories there is always a ransom that distinguishes the protagonist. A keystone that drastically changes the course of events and the local wine-growing history of Apulia. Susumaniello is sought after today. Grape varieties with high yields from young, represents the redemption of vine from Puglia. Arthouse wines today. Young wines, from moderate changes, fruity and floral, and only in certain special cases, with veiled hints of toast and spices. We were fortunate to be able to taste the label of Susumaniello the company Paul Leo. Since the opening of the bottle, the wine gives off great floral and fruity; sensations that propagate to demonstrate her young strength and olfactory propulsion. The company of San Donaci (BR) wanted to pay homage to this vine from Puglia (and with it the territory) that emphasizes the roots, traditions and cultures of the alto Salento. A frivolous wine: you notice from its acidity. A cheery red, strong guy, "wag", as if to mock the consumer. His revenge is his statement. A court jester who, for years, the victim of bullying, he wants to prove his quality. The dish together with our tasting is a Braised horse meat. A burly dish with an average spiciness. The change of taste is distinctive, almost unique in the genre. Switching from soft palate sensations upon contact with the creamy part sour and astringent that sharp bite of our beloved Susumaniello. Small hints of violets and peonies accompany the end of our dinner.
