Description: The Zanusso’s pride and joy are their two cru Friulano – Galea and Brazan. The Brazan vineyard is in the Collio and is a steep slope with ancient vines up to 70 years old. Here the site faces outwards towards the ocean, its soils moister than Galea’s due to a brook which flows below. We find Brazan to be a little more austere than Galea, more vertical and saline than fruity and perfumed.
