Harvesting: the grapes are from the Marixe area, from a selection of the best Pigato vines (over 60 years old plants) growing on marly and ferruginous soils and a particular micro-climate characterised by temperature swings at nighttime that enrich the wine with a magnificent olfactory heritage. Row farming, pruned-spur cordon-training. Late harvesting at the end of October.
Vinification: Cryogenic maceration for 24 hours followed by a soft pressing and fermentation using indigenous yeasts in steel vats under temperature control.
Aging: 6 months in steel containers and 3 months in the bottle.
Tasting: Luminous and intense straw-yellow with golden reflections. The olfactory range, rich and intense, begins with ripe yellow peach, loquat and citrus-fruits perfumes, followed by beautiful aromatic herbs notes, especially sage and thyme. Daisies and chamomile notes come up next, echoed by pleasant mineral hints of silica and saltiness; ending with a slight almond aftertaste. To the palate it is dry, intense with a wide volume and a good persistency. It lays on enveloping roundness perfectly matched by a fresh-sapid element even if its mineral espression stands out against acidity.
Food matching: The elegant, fruity and marine tones of this great ligurian wine which encloses all the chatacteristics of its sunny territory, are a triumphant match for sish-based first courses, fish soup or even “Corzetti with butter and sage”. I tried it with “baked seabrim in a salt crust” and the result has been perfect.
Serving temperature: between 10°and 12°
Storage: Enjoyable right away, it will be able to bring emotions and gift us with intriguing perfumes for a long time.
