The name Susucaru comes from a Sicilian expression meaning “they stole it” which is what Frank’s crew shouted when they realized most of the grapes from their first vintage had vanished.
Good luck finding any Susucaru at your local wine shop. Since Action Bronson shared his love for it, the few stores carrying it sold out.
Stole It or Sold Out…Same Thing Lol.
“You saw my face when they brought the Sususcaru out. I was like a little f*(kin’ kid, like my mom just bought the NBA Jam Tournament Edition. I been waiting for this Susucaru all my life. I love this one.” - Action Bronson
This red wine is a field-blend of mostly Nerello Mascalese (85%) with other local varietals from all their vineyards: Nerello Capuccio, Allicante Boushet, Minella and Uva Francesa.
The Susucaru Rosso expresses Etna as produced in a more traditional way of blending different contrada’s as well as different varietals to obtain a fragrant, elegant and fluid wine with structure and personality.
