Bruna Pigato "Majé" '18

Located in Western Liguria in the Arroscia Valley, Bruna has been around for over 50 years. Riccardo Bruna mastered the steep terraces, carved out stone walled terraces, lined with local varietals like Pigato, Granaccia (a variant of Grenache) and Rossesse. Now his daughter, Francesca, and her husband Roberto are currently at the helms. The small estate is only 15km from the sea, a forceful influence that is not only breathtaking, but essentially captured in each wine.

Bruna's production is small and precious. Working with less than 8 hectares of vineyards, they are farming organically. In our humble opinion, Bruna is THE benchmark producer for Pigato.

Majé, in Ligurian dialect, references the stone terraces that inhabit the hill of Garaxin where this selection of Pigato comes from. Here, the steep vineyards are almost 300 meters high, with vines planted south-facing in limestone-rich soils along with white and blue clay, dense with fossils.

This bottling captures youthful Pigato vines, preserving them in a similar manner by aging about 5 months in tank, on its lees. Pigato is a late-ripening varietal, so by giving it southern exposure, the fruit becomes harmoniously ripe and fresh, balanced by brilliant acidity. Experience a true seaside wine, full of briny hints, pops of citrus and fresh herbs.

Pigato is a great varietal go-to for any hard to pair vegetables, fried food and fresh seafood. Make this your next sushi wine pairing.
