Branu comes from the Spanish word Verano that was incorporated into the Sardinian language to mean Spring. As the meaning suggests, Branu is a wine with freshness at its core. Fermentation, vinification and maturation take place in stainless-steel tanks and the wine is bottled at the beginning of the next year. Fresh and crisp, the palate is a mix of citrus, white pepper, green apple and floral notes with salty mineral undertones and just a bitter hint of almond. It is one of the most successful wines made at Surrau and now a benchmark for the Vermentino di Gallura category.

A spritz of lemon zest gives way to fresh mint and crushed green apples as the 2022 Vermentino di Gallura Branu blossoms in the glass. This opens with a pleasant inner sweetness contrasted by a burst of crushed lime and salty minerals, all creating a display of lovely contrasts. It finishes with a buzz of residual tension, leaving sour citrus and rosemary suggestions. The 2022 is built on energy yet packed full of crisp Vermentino fruit.

The nose starts savory and nutty, then turns floral and citrusy, but the nuttiness lingers. Nuts dominate the palate as well, along with a salty bite, but flowers return on the finish, which has a mouthcoating texture like essential oil.
