Incrocio Bruni 54 is a very rare grape variety, born in the Marche region. It is a cross (incrocio) between Verdicchio di Jesi and Sauvignon Blanc, created in the 1930s by Professor Bruni. Over the years this variety had nearly died out, so the winery is trying to preserve it by cultivating it at the heart of the vineyard.
