Brustiano Bianco

The white grape variety originates from Italy; it is found under different names in Corsica (France) and Sardinia (Italy). Synonyms are Arremungiau, Brustiano, Brustianu, Calitrano, Calitranu, Colitrano, Lacconargiu, Lacconarzu, Licronaxiu, Licronaxu Bianco and Remungiò. The ancestry (parentage) is unknown. It should not be confused with the Brustiano Faux, Retagliado Bianco or Vermentino varieties, despite seemingly suggestive synonyms or morphological similarities. DNA analyses carried out in 2007 revealed that the Sardinian Licronaxu Bianco is identical, and Licronaxu Nero is a colour mutation. The high-yielding vine is susceptible to powdery mildew. No stocks were reported (under either Brustiano or Licronaxu) in 2016 (Kym Anderson).

The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.
