In Romagna people were accustomed to give a nickname to the peasant families that was then handed down from
father to son, a tradition which, similarly to our dialect, is going to die.
“Bron” and “Rusèval” were and will be the nicknames of the families Sirri and Casadei respectively.
Producing a good quality wine and identifying it with this name is a unique occasion to continue a tradition that would
have hardly survived over the time. The project was born years ago when the farm decided to test the potential
capacities of its lands as well as its technical abilities with international grapes like the Chardonnay and the Cabernet.

2017 VINTAGE FEATURES
2017 was a particularly challenging vintage, due to extreme weather conditions:
lack of rainfalls and hot summer temperature often reaching 38°C.
Grapes were harvested at the beginning of September 3 weeks earlier than usual maturation times.
Grapes had elevate sugar concentration, well compensated by good acidity and balanced ph.
