Significant scores from Falstaff’s annual competition
Falstaff continues to reward wines, varieties and territories with scores supporting the quality achieved in Apulia, Italy’s largest vineyard.
Rubino regards Falstaff as an irreproachable point of reference for the German speaking market and for the Brindisi company their annual competition is a fundamental event for those who wish to gain a professional and prestigious presence in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
Consistently entering its wines has enabled to record its evolution from harvest to harvest, with a selection of vintage references, confirming their character and oenological value.
The extraordinary amount of points achieved by Torre Testa Susumaniello 2019, with 95 points, coming in at a clear third place out of 51 samples tasted.
With 94 points, within the top 10 wines with the highest scores, the other two historic wines: Jaddico Brindisi Riserva 2017 and the much-decorated Visellio 2019.
Completing the medal collection with 91 points, another important wine from: Oltremè Susumaniello Brindisi DOC, 2019 vintage.
The virtuous journey of quality Apulian wine continues. This particular scenario sees four red wines take centre stage in the Falstaff classification, Rubino has distinguished itself with four important scores, giving recognition to our work, from the vineyard, managed by the family agronomist Piernicola Tondo, to the winemaking cellar, coordinated by the oenologist Luca Petrelli; a clear third place achieved by the Torre Testa 2017 vintage affirms the value of the almost representative choice, focusing on the rediscovery of Susumaniello.
This is Apulia, the quality wine producer, able to fully express the territory’s potential and the extraordinarily unique and particular native grape varieties, especially through the age worthy red wines.
Today our company is able to demonstrate all the different expressions of this extraordinary grape variety and we are delighted that other Apulian wine producers have followed our example.
