''Yellow peach, Mediterranean brush and a whiff sea breeze virtually leap out of the glass. Tangy and savory, the bright, medium-bodied palate doles out juicy apricot, pineapple and a hint of wild fennel. A tangy saline note marks the close.'' 93 Points, Kerin O'Keefe, Wine Enthusiast Magazine (Previous Vintage Review)
''Penetrating, chiselled aromas and flavours of white stone fruit and minerals. Closes long with zingy acidity. A very pretty, refreshing wine of sneaky concentration.'' 91 Points, Ian D'Agata, Vinous Media (Previous Vintage Review)
''This is a pretty wine with lots of dried daffodils, apricots and yellow apples. Medium body, round and generous fruit.'' 91 Points, James Suckling (Previous Vintage Review)
''The Vermentino di Gallura Branu wafts up with masses of crushed stone and mineral notes complemented by lime and green apple. It's silky and round in feel,
well-balanced by acids and ripe orchard fruits. While incredibly fresh, the Branu is also persistent, resonating on inner florals and hints of savory spice.'' Eric Guido (Previous Vintage Review)
