Incrocio Bruni 54

The white grape variety is a new breed between Aleatico x Lacrima (?). Synonyms are Bruni 54 and Dorico. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2010, the parenthood Sauvignon Blanc x Verdicchio Bianco, which is registered in the breeding list, has been found to be incorrect. The cross was made in Italy in 1936 by the breeder Bruno Bruni. The early maturing vine is resistant to botrytis. It produces spicy white wines with a slightly bitter taste. The variety is grown in the Marche region, where it is permitted in the DOC wine Colli Maceratesi. There are also smaller stocks in Umbria (Perugia). In 2016 the area under cultivation was only three hectares with a decreasing tendency (Kym Anderson).
