Located in the Ligurian Riviera at Albenga between the hills and the Mediterranean sea, Cascina Fèipu was founded in 1960’s when Agostino Parodi began converting his father’s (Filippo – Fèipu in dialect) orchards to grape growing. Since there were no appellations for Ligurian wine at the time, Agostino chose to name the winery after his father and their locality, Massaretti.
The vineyards are planted on sandy alluvial soil and enjoys striking diurnal temperature shifts thanks to the alternation between winds from the sea during the day and from the land at night. These two factors combine to provide the perfect home for Pigato to develop their full aromatic potential, giving light wines that are easy to drink but more elegant and complex.
Pigato is also known as Vermentino. Brilliant pale straw colour with greenish tinged edges and a watery hue. Lifted pear skin, lime and green apple scents intermingle with some guava, fresh herb and stony mineral notes. Delicious pear, red apple skin and lime flavours show terrific intensity and textural volume across the mouth watering palate. Infusions of Mediterranean herbs, wet stones and minerals lie underneath. Finishes dry with crunchy acidity and a long saline laced aftertaste.
Drink over the next 2-3 years.
