Ligurian whites don't normally make me jump up and down but this Pigato has been the best of its kind for me. Yes it has the classic length, and fresh acidity one expects in an un-oaked Ligurian white but it is the palate weight and balance that set it apart, so supple and enticing still with the bright acidity and saltiness one gets in coastal Italian whites. The fruit aromatics are exquisite, they fill your nose with penetrating and concise fruit scents while spice and white flowers drift and waft through the scene.
Drink from 2014 to 2016

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
