Claudio Vio Ligurian PigatoTabula Rasa
Ettore and Natalina Vio planted vines and olive trees amidst the mountain scrub in Liguria, Italy the 1970s. Their son Claudio and his wife, Maria Grazia, now tend the family farm.
100% Pigato, which some people say is the same as Vermentino, however Ligurians doubt this as Pigato looks different and the resulting wines taste different, even when vinified the same. “Pigato” comes from a dialect word meaning freckled and refers to the spotted appearance of the grape skins.
The wine drinks with incredible depth and nuance. Dry with balanced acidity - it definitely can be a food wine or drank solo. Only 750 cases were made!
