Information about Susumaniello

Grape variety Susumaniello

Grape color Red grape
Vigor Good
Ripening period First half of September.
Productivity Abundant in the youthful age (70 / ha. Over ten years down to 50 ha.).
Growing areas It is cultivated only in the toast, and should not be confused with the red tomato cultivated in Barletta, in the barese.
History There are several theories about Susumaniello's origins, most of which suggest that it came to Puglia across the Adriatic, perhaps from Greece or the Dalmatian Coast of Croatia. DNA profiling shows that the variety is a natural cross between a Puglian table grape and the white-wine grape Garganega. This makes it a sibling of the even rarer Dorona di Venezia variety, which grows only on a single island in the Venetian Lagoon. Garganega was once thought to be of Greek origin (whence its southern Italian nickname Grecanico), which no doubt led some to the conclusion that Susumaniello was also Greek.
