A careful selection of grapes from their oldest vineyards, all over 50 years old. U Baccan, the local dialect word for “boss”, expresses the Pigato variety’s complexity and great personality. First made in 1999, a vintage that still drinks well today. This is aged in Austrian 1000 litre (Stockinger) acacia barrels.
This is very fine and complex with aromatic notes of mango skin and guava alongside salt, lime and seaspray. The mouthfeel is wonderful, it has Ganevat precision and freshness and the complexity extends on the finish. This is certainly the finest Pigato I have tasted and is a wine that represents the finest of Liguria.
