The flagship wine for Liguria's acclaimed label, Bruna, the fruit for 'U Baccan' ("the boss") comes from 50-70 year old vines on both blue and red clay soils, rich in ferrous minerals and fossils. The best fruit from these low-yielding old vines gets selected each vintage for ‘U Baccan’. The wine is aged in barrel on lees follows, with regular battonage for 10 months, with a further 8 months in bottle before release. The attention to detail in fruit selection and winemaking delivers an ideal representation of Vermentino’s complexity and great personality. 

Straw yellow in the glass, with aromas of Mediterranean herbs like sage and thyme, as well as peach, mango and acacia honey. Mouthfilling texture with balsamic, saline and mineral notes. This is a wine with excellent cellaring potential, and will complement seafood, vegetarian dishes and Liguria’s famous pesto.
