Liguria's Pigato celebrated in the Wall Street Journal

Described by the author “as an afterthought” compared to red wines, Italian whites are now beginning to make a strong presence on the wine market and are starting to get attention.

In a recent Wall Street Journal article - “Push Past Pinot Grigio: Italy’s Unsung Whites”- the wide selection of Italian white wines was finally given its deserved worth.

Described by the author “as an afterthought” compared to red wines, Italian whites are now beginning to make a strong presence on the wine market and are starting to get attention.

Italian white wines’ lack of recognition is definitely not due to lack of quality or prestige, but rather to little knowledge by most US wine lovers and tasters.

New York Eataly Vino’s manager  has paid close attention to the white wine selection and has started to introduce customers to lesser-known wines, such as Pigato from Western Liguria.

The Wall Street Journal, in fact, among its top 5 white Italian wines suggests a Western Liguria Pigato by Terre Bianche winery of Filippo Rondelli in Dolceacqua.
