DURIN RIVIERA 2012 LIGURE DI PONENTE PIGATO

Pigato is considered the “prince” of Ligurian white wines,Originally from Greece, the Pigato grape made its way to Liguria in the 1600s, and is believed to be a cousin of the white grape Vermintino. The Durin is 100% Pigato and the age of the vines are 50 years, they hand harvest and it is fremented and aged in stainless steel tanks,which gives the wine pure clean vibrant fruity aromas's of white peaches and honey blend with wildflowers and a touch of herbs. Medium-bodied with lots of white pepper and citrus flavors. Pigato’s most striking characteristic is its savory yet slightly “amaro,” or bitter, finish of stone fruits and fresh almonds.

To figure out what to pair with Pigato, you don’t need to think very hard considering the delicious selection of foods from where this grape calls home. Grilled seafood is an obvious choice, but the wine’s flavorful concentration can easily stand up to coconut-milk curries and especially garlic-rich sauces with ease—fresh basil pesto being the Genoese favorite.
