Notes "The “Pignocco” gets its name from a legendary and particularly imposing and bushy pine tree situated at the top of a hill surrounded by vineyards. This is an easy-drinking wine, vinified and aged only in stainless steel to enhance its approachability. Floral perfumes are accompanied by notes of almond and peach; in the mouth it is fresh and savory with a persistent and pleasant aftertaste of almond. The Pignocco is extremely versatile, an ideal accompaniment to appetizers and light dishes." (Winemaker's Notes) Imported by Kermit Lynch.

Additional Notes

"Very pretty in the glass, with green-tinged yellow hues and a spicy and floral bouquet. It’s soft in texture, yet with a salty, savory thrust that offsets its ripe melon and apple notes, while leaving you with a clean and refreshing sensation. The Pignocco is vinified all in stainless steel tanks, and it is a nice introduction to the Santa Barbara style. Sip with abandon." (Vinous)
