La storia

Pigato is also a typical Ponente Ligure wine that received D.O.C. status on 31 March 1988. Of Middle Eastern origin, it made its way to Europe, where it reached its maximum expression in Liguria. There the variety found its natural habitat in the Province of Imperia and the plain of Albenga, of alluvial origin.
Organoleptic characteristics
Colour
Straw colour
Fragrance
Full, intense and persistent, with a hint of yellow peach, acacia honey and broom flowers.
Taste
Full-bodied, flavourful and dry, but lastingly mellow, with a typical undertone of pleasing bitterness. Pigato is recommended as an aperitif or with savoury seafood and stew.
Wine-making process
the wine-making process is traditional, stressing two fundamental steps:
• limiting the contact of must and marc to several hours to obtain the
   fragrances typical of the grape skins and a moderately deep colour;
• controlling must fermentation with the aid of a refrigerator to keep
   temperature at approximately 20°C, thus enhancing and preserving
   the variety's typical features.
   The wine so obtained has an alcohol content of about 12°.
