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.

2018 VINTAGE FEATURES

After a very dry vintage in 2017, going back to an almost normal growing season is like a dream!

In 2018, mild temperatures and moderate rainfalls were a blessing: a harvest you did not expect, after 20 years of tackling extreme weather conditions.

For this reason, this wine in 2018 shows its power with discretion and balance.

Well-structured wine, excellent and easy-to-pair with food.
