Bruna Vermentino 2017
A remarkable addition to the Bruna range is this Vermentino, from an organically farmed vineyard next to their Pigato vines in Ranzo. Francesca & Roberto have long maintained that their corner of Liguria has unsurpassed terroir for Pigato - and they're right - but that doesn't mean they aren't able to make some stunning Vermentino too. What's more, it should put to rest any notions that these grapes are totally one and the same. Pretty much the same vineyard, and made in the same way as their Pigato Majé - try them alongside each other. True to form, the Bruna Vermentino is fuller and fruitier, without the same wild herbs you get with Pigato. The 2017 vintage is utterly gorgeous, and in very, very short supply.
