The Astor Wines & Spirits Glossary

Liguria

While perhaps more famous for its topless beaches, Liguria also produces some truly outstanding and unusual white wines. As the region is dominated primarily by coastal villages, it’s not surprising that the typical Liguria diet is rich in seafood - and as such, snappy, high-acidity whites are quite the M.O. One notable exception is the wine made from the idiosyncratic Pigato grape, which yields a softer, more lush wine with distinctive notes of herbs and (we’re not being tongue-and-cheek here) pencil eraser on the nose. These wines are a must-try for the adventurous connoisseur!
