ARRIVING IN JULY!

A 0.8ha vineyard consisting of iron-rich, rocky red clay soil planted to vines between 25 and 50 years old. This vineyard has been in the family since the 18th century. The “Le Russeghine” vineyard is located in the hills above the village of Ranzo Borgo to 230 meters above sea level, with a south-east exposition.  

The grapes are destemmed. In 2015, Bruna decided against any maceration.  After a soft pressing, the wine is cool fermented at 18°C then aged for eight months in 80% stainless, and 20% in 1200 liter Taransaud French casks, 4th passage.
