With over a dozen Gambero Rosso awards to their credit, Tenute Rubino has in excess of 200 hectares under cultivation and produces 17 different labels from 7 indigenous varieties. The one that immediately struck our fancy was their amazing Susumaniello; a red grape that almost became extinct before Rubino came to it's rescue. Currently 28 hectares of this rare variety, out of a total of only 40 in existence, belong to Rubino.
The Rubino Vinyards lie on the banks of the Adriatic just outside Brindisi and are influenced by a constant breeze from the sea to the east. This unique microclimate allows for wines of unusual brightness and depth of flavor.
