2021 Bruna, Riviera Ligure di Ponente ‘Maje’, Liguria

Riviera Ligure di Ponente is located in the region of Liguria along the north-western coast of Italy. Here the Bruna's vineyards were planted in 1970 by Francesca's father, Riccardo Bruna. It is a tiny 7.5 hectare estate consisting of only 5-6 vineyard plots, all planted on terraced vineyards carved out of the mountainside. The production volume in a top year is only 3000 cases. The vineyards are located at 200-300 meters above sea level and only 15km from the Mediterranean Sea.

Nowadays, Bruna is run by Riccardo’s daughter Francesca and her husband, Roberto. The estate has worked organically (not certified) since 2009. The vines are to be found on traditional steep terraces known as majé. Naturally fermented and aged on fine lees in tanks and some seasoned large barrels for 6-12 months. All wines are made in very low volumes and Roberto, being a graphic designer by trade, knows a thing or two about nice packaging.

Why do we like it?

The ‘Maje’ is made 100% from Pigato, an indigenous variety to Liguria, which in the right hands is capable of producing splendid wines. In this example, you will find a lot of lemon peel, white flowers and almond coupled with a touch of sea air, and a streak of minerality
