2020 Laura Aschero Pigato Riviera Ligure di Ponente
PRIMA Notes: Here is a wine that tastes of the Italian Riviera itself. It’s salinity is palpable, as are the wild herbs, bracken and flowers that are so much a part of the flora of this region. The fruit is surprisingly rich and leans a bit towards the tropical, with hints of apricots and pineapple to go with its lemon verbena core. Still, it’s the wine’s taut vibrancy and broad mineral-finish that makes this one of the world’s best seafood wines.
