Colle dei Bardellini Pigato 2015
Roast fish with Ligurian olive oil; pesto sauce pasta; stuffed squids with pine nuts and olives; stock-fish with potatoes and rosemary.
Sitting at almost 1,000 feet above sea level, Colle dei Bardellini enjoys a desirable south-west exposure in a Mediterranean climate surrounded by the floral maritime vegetation of the region, such as maritime pine, from Pittosporum, and wild herbs. The mild weather creates the ideal conditions for viticulture, and the vibrant aromas of the surrounding hills and the saline sea breeze seem to inspire the local varieties to great aromas that cannot be found in any other region.
Today, Pino Sola is the administrative director of Colle dei Bardellini and its unofficial historian. Having spent over thirty vintages on the estate, he can describe the personality of its two exported wines from memory.
Beyond the usual suspects, there are hundreds of white grape varieties grown throughout the world. Some are indigenous specialties capable of producing excellent single varietal wines, while others are better suited for use as blending grapes. Each has its own distinct viticultural characteristics, as well as aroma and flavor profiles, offering much to be discovered by the curious wine lover. In particular, Portugal, Spain, Italy and Greece are known for having a multitude of unique varieties but they can really be found in any region.
