L'Archetipo - Susumante 2021
Very special sparkling rosé made from the hyper local Susumaniello variety. The sort of wine that really bridges the gap style-wise between a fruity and fun pet nat and a more serious and textured traditional method sparkling. Beautiful colour, bursting with fruity energy and a lovely yeasty edge with a long finish.
Made by Valentino Dibenedetto and his four children, who together run the project L'Archetipo. Rooted in the concepts of synergistic agriculture, they are at the forefront of Italy's no-till regenerative viticulture movement. Farming vines alongside ancient grains, the aim is proper soil health, which ultimately leads to grapes and wines of insane balance and energy.
