We have reconstructed the path of an ancient wine produced in Brindisi through the fragments of amphorae dating from 19
B. C. and found at the Masada fortress city located in Giudea.
The name of the wine was “Philonianum”, and the amphorae displayed a Brindisi’s family seal, Laenius.
As we take inspiration from Brindisi historical winemaking tradition, we chose to name our Susumaniello after this wine, as we did for Masada, our Negroamaro DOC Brindisi.
Philonianum is deep red, rich with total acidity, dry, elegant with austere taste. It is suitable for ageing and refining in the bottle.
