CURIOSITY: The name comes from the term “somarello” in Apulian vernacular, it indicates the high level of productivity of this vine which is loaded down with grapes “like a mule”. These vines begin to considerably decrease their productivity not before the first 10 years of their lives, thus benefitting the grapes which will produce structured and highly aromatic wines.Download Data Sheet
