Pigato is a Ligurian variant of Vermentino which has adjusted to the coast and climate. The name, which means spotted, refers to the little rusty tones that appear on Pigato grapes when they reach advanced maturation. Its golden, intense color reveals a lasting aroma with hints of peach, acacia, honey and aromatic herbs. It is a dry wine with a lovely bitter aftertaste. Perfect with any fish, crustaceans, grilled white meats, pesto and even cured meats.
Terre Bianche was founded in 1870 when Tommaso Rondelli planted the first Rossese grapes on a unique and peculiar white soil in the Ligurian Riviera. The estate expanded over the years with the addition of more vineyards and olive tree groves. The family business grew and blossomed between 1985 and 1998, receiving international attention. Today, the family is working hard to maintain the standards achieved over the years and to ensure the quality of their wines.
