History: In September 2003 during the winery’s first Syrah harvest, the founder Bruno Giusti passed away. Perbruno means “for Bruno”, and this wine is dedicated to him.
Components Perbruno is our single-variety Syrah selection and one of our winery’s Crús. It is harvested from a single vineyard in the trenched land in the middle of the estate, which was set up in 1999 on sandy loam soil of medium consistency.
Refinement and Ageing The wine’s ageing takes place in 300 and 500 litres medium-toasted French oak tonneaux for about 12 months. Once the cuvée has been formed, the wine rests in a concrete tank. Before being bottled, this wine is made undergo mild filtering.
Organoleptic profile Perbruno is a dense wine of an intense purple colour. The wine’s olfactory profile is dominated by fruit, especially cherries, blackberries and blueberries. In the mouth, it is direct and linear. The tannin flaunts the Syrah’s typical softness, and the blend texture is rich and velvety. After swallowing, the typical spices of the variety emerge, with traces of white and green pepper. The finish reveals balsamic notes of mint and eucalyptus. It matches well dishes of read meat, medium or slow-cooked game meat, and braised meat also cooked with the same wine. It is also excellent with well-aged cheeses. It lends itself to a very long ageing, of 12 to 15 years.
