A touch rubbery on the nose, with a classic hint of pencil eraser that I associate with Pigato. Hints of herbs, and slightly smoked fruits, lemons and pineapple add some complexity to the nose. In the mouth, there is an earthy minerality under rather rich fruit, with hints at grapefruit pith and under-ripe pineapple fruit. Pigato is often referred to as Vermentino in wine circles, but the wines do show a character that is different than most Vermentino. At best it may be a specific clone of Vermentino, but is best considered as a distinct wine. 88 points
