    • "Bansigu" Rosso Colline Savonesi IGT 2019

      “Bansigu” Rosso Colline Savonesi IGT 2019

      Bansigu in Ligurian dialect means drive, verve and could not describe the character of this lively, typically Mediterranean red. It is mainly pressed from Granaccia, an autochthonous vine which, together with Rossese, Barbera and Cinsault, ensures great juiciness and freshness. Bright cherry red with ruby reflections. Intense and fascinating nose with notes of dog rose, strawberries, plums and raspberries. In the drink it is lively and light with a very interesting arc of tension, in the final it is fruity with invigorating acidity and a salty Mediterranean vein. SUPERIORE.DE

    • Vermentino Riviera Ligure di Ponente DOC 2019

      Vermentino Riviera Ligure di Ponente DOC 2019

      The grapes for this pure Vermentino come from three small terraces of the Garaxin vineyard, surrounded by stone walls. The soils are mainly composed of calcareous marine rock and are rich in micro- and macrofossil fauna. Around the vineyards grow woods and Mediterranean shrubs, which are essential for softening the hot and dry, very windy climate. Bright and bright straw yellow in colour, the bouquet is fine and delicate with notes of lemon peel, cereals and aromatic herbs of the Mediterranean maquis. In the strong drink very spicy and typical of the grape variety with a touch of sea salt and dried herbs. SUPERIORE.DE

      “Le Russeghine” Pigato Riviera Ligure di Ponente DOC 2019

The Pigato is particularly deep and mineral here, due to the exceptional terroir and long ageing on the fine lees. Bright straw yellow with light green reflections. Fragrant nose of herbs, yellow fruit and traces of pine resin. Full and persistent taste with beautiful spiciness and aromas of citrus and almond, and finally that beguiling, deep minerality.

    • "Pulin" Rosso Colline Savonesi IGT 2018

      “Pulin” Rosso Colline Savonesi IGT 2018

      Pulin is the result of the rediscovery of the Granaccia vine, one of the most valuable in the small wine region of Liguria, which was almost extinct. The wines, which are produced in absolutely small quantities, have an excellent structure, Mediterranean radiance and a remarkable ageing potential. Intense and concentrated cherry red, Mediterranean bouquet of red fruits such as strawberry tree, blackberry, wild strawberries, in addition to fine hints of sweet spices and tobacco. On the palate then very harmonious with elegant, polished tannins and a very long and spicy finish. An impressive red of great complexity, elegance and finesse, here all components are impressively perfectly matched. SUPERIORE.DE

    • "u Baccan" Pigato Riviera Ligure di Ponente DOC 2018

      “u Baccan” Pigato Riviera Ligure di Ponente DOC 2018

      The Pigato grape has a great potential for ageing and ripening, especially in Liguria. U Baccan (Ligurian: the head) comes mainly from vines of the Russeghine vineyard, which are over 50 years old, produce a very low yield and give it an enormous complexity. Intense straw yellow with bright golden-green reflections. Impressive purity on the nose with beguiling hints of sage, thyme, peach, mango, cedar bark, acacia honey and silica. The palate is enveloping, balsamic and mineral, in the long, vibrating final then a hint of salty almond and candied citrus fruit. A Pigato in a class of its own in the finest Riserva quality.

    About the winemakers
    Bruna
    Liguria
    Bruna

    Riccardo Bruna's daughters Francesca and Annamaria went to Genoa for their studies, convinced that engineering and pharmaceutical chemistry was their future. But it didn't take them long to convince themselves of the opposite and they were drawn back to the vineyards of their beautiful Ligurian homeland. Her father's deep-rooted passion for Ligurian wine could not pass the sisters by without leaving a trace.

    "My father thought he was a traditionalist, but I knew he was in fact a revolutionary," says Francesca Bruna, who today successfully continues the Bruna family winery together with her husband Roberto. Her father Riccardo had indeed revolutionary views on Ligurian viticulture and was one of the first winemakers to devote his heart and soul to growing the Pigato grape - a white, late-ripening grape variety related to the Vermentino.

    Thanks to Riccardo Bruna's intuition and enthusiasm, he began to restore and sustainably cultivate the historic family vineyards in Ranzo in the early 1970s. From the very beginning, abandoning all herbicides and synthetic products was the only possible way for Riccardo Bruna to harvest the best grapes and thus produce ever better wines every year. This approach was not very common at the time, which meant that the winery was able to stand out from the competition.

    Courageous decisions were therefore a constant part of the company's working philosophy and the following generation has also remained faithful to it: In addition to the biological-natural cultivation of the vines, fermentation takes place in the cellar with native yeasts. Pure yeasts are used without exception and the wines mature for a long time on the noble autochthonous lees.

    "This has always been our way of working with Pigato grapes," says Francesca, who is now one of the leading quality producers in Liguria. The typical characteristics of the grape variety and Riccardo's personality should remain unmistakable in their own wines, which Francesca and Roberto have undoubtedly achieved. In collaboration with the oenologist Valter Bonetti, they produce not only tasty Pigato wines but also an outstanding Vermentino and harmonious red wine cuvées from the Rossese, Granaccia, Syrah and Barbera grape varieties.

    Today, eight hectares of vineyards thrive on Ligurian stone wall terraces between the municipalities of Ortovero and Ranzo, amidst Mediterranean maquis, olive trees and oaks. The dry, mild and very windy climate allows the vines to grow in a natural way, surrounded by the endless horizon of the western Mediterranean and the enchanted green landscape of the Ligurian Alps. The Bruna winery represents Liguria's unique beauty and diversity, preserved for a long time by the family of the same name. SUPERIORE.DE
