Cusumano - young, dynamic, innovative, Sicily
At the end of the 90's the brothers Alberto and Diego Cusumano take over the prestigious winery and from the beginning of the new millennium they set in motion a remarkable success story and growth that in a few years becomes exemplary of the dynamism and innovative spirit of the Sicilian wine industry. Over 500 hectares of vineyards in production in four locations in Sicily, close to two and a half million bottles sold per year, export of 50% of the total production to over 62 countries in the world.
Cusumano - the many faces of Sicilian wines
Together with oenologist Mario Ronco, the project was launched in 2001. The company owns vineyards in four Anbuaregions throughout the island of Sicily, each growing area has different characteristics in terms of climate, soil and grape varieties. The grape varieties are grown in the optimal locations for them and are vinified under modern conditions in the new wine cellar. This is how the unique wines of Cusumano are created, which awaken Sicily's sun in the glass with their complex and powerful fruit aromas.
