Santa Susanna comes from the Veneto region. One of the largest wine regions in Italy, bordered by the Dolemites to the north and the Slovenian border to the east. The harvest is done in two parts, the first one takes place at the beginning of September, from these grapes a wine is made that has a good fruity taste. The second part of the harvest takes place in mid-October, when the grapes are very ripe.
The result is a full, round and powerful wine. The two wines are then blended and, until the moment of bottling, the wine matures for a few months in oak to gain depth of flavour.
Appassimento ? This is a way of making wine and is particularly well known in Italian Amarone and Ripasso. By making wines using this technique, we obtain particularly tasty and intense wines. They are powerful, fruit-laden wines. This technique is as old as the road to Rome; it was first used in Roman times. It is mainly found in the Italian wine region of Valpolicella (part of Veneto), east of Lake Garda.
