Special notes

Cusumano Jale is produced exclusively with Chardonnay grapes from only the best climates. It convinces with its density and richness of bouquet, its wonderful amplitude and long finish. Francesco Cusumano founded his company about forty years ago. Winemaker at heart, his faith in Sicilian wine convinced him of the islanders' ability to produce exceptional wines. It was to achieve this goal that he got straight to work. The idea of vintages consumed Cusumano for years, convinced that there is an optimal climate for each grape variety. Cusumano has based his approach on Sicily's diversity. He has traveled the island in search of the regions with the most favourable conditions for each variety. He bought vineyards. The domain includes vineyards in remarkable climates: Partinico, Monreale, Piana degli Albanesi, Alcamo, Salemi, Butera and Pachino. In the 90's, his sons Alberto and Diego entered the family business,whose growth has only accelerated. Cusumano built his cellars to meet all the requirements of modern technology: temperature controlled stainless steel fermentation tanks, French oak barrels, air-conditioning. Cusumano's wines are among the best produced in Sicily. They have lots of personality and carry their own signature style. They reveal an incredible concentration of fruity notes and captivating creaminess only found in southern wines.

    Nicht kaufen - Diesen Wein sollte man nicht kaufen. Alle 6 Flaschen waren schlecht, ich musste den gesamten Karton zurück geben. Da der Wein nicht in den Filialen gelistet ist, muss man für die Erstattung 2 mal in einen Laden, da ja erst Abklärungen gemacht werden müssen.
    Mit diesem "Sonderangebot" versucht der Category Manager verdorbene Ware loszuwerden, damit das nicht auf seine Bestandsminderungen einzahlt.
