Grape Composition: Susumaniello 100%
Deep red, at times with blue hues, almost drawing from the ultramarine blue label with red text. Here there’s some interference from the Ear, who hears the waves crashing against Torre Testa, a small peninsula home to this strategically positioned tower on the Brindisi coast. But the Nose takes back control immediately. He also daydreams: visions of the heat of the fireplace, the smoking log, a stroll in the forest with the smell of damp forest leaves, and then the sea, on a summer’s evening: a romantic night, perfumes of bay leaves and myrtle, with an echo of spices. The Palate feels the concentration of the compact liquid and a strong elegance with a dynamic and penetrating rhythm. Embracing the intensity, volume and subtle power while the curtain closes on this singular and captivating character. Torre Testa is a susumaniello that towers above the rest.
It needs structured dishes such as pappardelle with meat sauce, grilled or roasted meat. Very good the match with seasoned cheeses such as Canestrato Pugliese DOP.
