2018 Selvadolce Turbolento
Selvadolce Turbolento is a small batch light and fresh sparkling wine produced with 100% Pigato grapes, a variety that has been in the area for centuries. Genetically Pigato has proven to be a clone of Vermentino however has differentiated over time developing its own characteristics. Pigato comes from 'pighe' which means freckles in Ligurian dialect. This is in reference to the small brown spots on its skin, making Pigato Vermentino's freckly twin - As a freckly twin myself I love this analogy and could this simple difference be the key to it taking on its own personality away from its twin?. Pigato is said to hold more structure and aromatic quality than its twin along with being more stubborn in the vineyard.
