Pigato DOC

Riviera Ligure di Ponente

 

Pigato’s origin are still not defined but recent studies placed it as a Vermentino’s clone.

During the years, it was found to be different from the original grapevine and it found its best environment in the internal parts of Riviera Ligure di Ponente; nowdays is one of the best typical ligurian wine.
