'Le Moie' Pigato
Riviera Ligure di Ponente DOC
Pigato is a genetic mutation of its 'better' known cousin Vermentino. The aroma wafting from a glass of Pigato invokes the sea breeze and living the Italian Riviera life! The grapes have red reflection on the skin when ripe and the wine usually have almond flavors and often marked acidity.
Pale brassy yellow with brilliant brassy reflections. The bouquet is tight and opens to intense minerality and slight gunflint. On the palate it's bright, with pleasant minerality and mineral acidity supported by slight savory accents as well, and it flows into a clean fairly savory mineral finish. Some pretty serious richness here.

Imperia is Liguria's westernmost province. It borders Piedmont to the north, the Savona province of Liguria to the east and France to the west. To the south, it is lapped by the Ligurian Sea. The sea and the mountains are so close that the area hosts four mountain communities: Comunità dell'Olivo, Alta Valle Arroscia, Argentina Armea and Montana Intemelia. Learn More »
Ramoino was established in 1964 in the village of Sarola. Sarola is a charming village in the hinterland of Imperia, only 3.5 miles from the sea and from the Via Aurelia, the main road that connects the tourist resorts along the Riviera. The soil is rugged and the elevation changes drastically depending on the part of the property. Ramoino is truly the definition of a family run estate. Learn More »
