Torre Testa of Tenute Rubino is a wine absolutely to try. First because it is produced from a company that has been collecting numerous successes in the international wine industry, and then especially because it fully exploits the potential of a native Salento grape.

In wine-growing tradition of this territory it was implanted together with Negroamaro and Malvasia Nera. It requires a kind of sandy soil, an alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks and aging in bottle. In the mid-80s, in Brindisi, the Rubino family began to build the existing farm Tenute Rubino now become the production base of fine wines including the Susumaniello.
The business project is centered on the production of quality wines in the Salento area, particularly suited to grape growing.
