Vigneti a Prua Pigato, Riviera Ligure di Ponente, Liguria, Italy 2021

Vigneti a Prua's vineyards are planted on steeply terraced limestone cliffs overlooking the waters of the Ligurian sea. If this sounds like paradise, you should taste the wine!  Pigato is very similar to Vermentino. Some argue that it is the same, but don't you dare say that to a Ligurian winery owner.  These wines are lively and fresh.  Bright citrus and stone fruits with beautiful acidity.

Pairing: Fresh white fish and spring vegetable 

Grape: Pigato 

Farming Practices: Organic 

* “Vermentino is actually Pigato. Wait a minute; no, Pigato is not Vermentino. After years debating the issue, researchers, wine experts and producers in Italy all agree to disagree on the subject. The academicians all apparently believe that Pigato and Vermentino are the same; many of Liguria’s wine producers do not. Being facetious, you might say that’s because the grapes are both Favorita. No, wait: they’re all Piccabon (a wrong attribution: we now know Piccabon is identical to Vernaccia di San Gimignano). And so the story goes on. And on. According to recent genetic testing, however, Piedmont’s Favorita and western Liguria’s Pigato appear to be biotypes of Vermentino, rather than distinct varieties...” – Ian d’Agata – Native Wine Grapes of Italy
