2015 Pigato “Vigneto Ca da Rena”

Punta Crena

2015 Pigato “Vigneto Ca da Rena” Punta Crena - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

Punta Crena has come to be one of the most reliable names in white wine here at KLWM. Every single year, whatever the challenges Mother Nature comes up with, we can count on the Ruffino family to deliver crisp, refreshing, delicious white wines from their stony  terraces clinging to the cliffs above the Mediterranean along the Ligurian coast. There are few places more beautiful on earth, and this shines through in the glass. Our friends at Punta Crena have truly figured out how to bottle happiness. —Dixon Brooke

About Liguria

A long, crescent-shaped sliver of mountainous coastline ranging from the French border in the west to that of Tuscany in the east, Liguria is a region of unrivaled Mediterranean charm. This applies not only to its colorful seaside villages and carefree, welcoming people, but also to the wines it produces—crisp whites and light reds designed to be quaffed with locally caught seafood.

Viticulture has thrived along these coastal hillsides since Etruscan times. Ancient stone terraces line the steep slopes all along the Riviera, many abandoned while others still host olive trees, lemon trees, and of course, the vine. What Liguria lacks in acreage, it makes up for in diversity and originality: home to numerous indigenous grape varieties, it produces wines of infectious local character.

The hallmarks of Ligurian wines are fragrant aromatics and lively freshness. Whites from grapes like Vermentino and Pigato capture the pervasive flavors of wild herbs and citrus with a sea-breeze salinity, while the rare reds from Rossese, among others, have a brightness of flavor that allows them to complement dishes from the sea or land—served with a slight chill, of course.

While Kermit’s history in the region is relatively recent, Liguria has rapidly become one of his favorite places to visit. It’s hard to blame him—enjoying a crisp, perfumed white with a platter of fried sea critters on the Mediterranean is definitely not the worst part of the job.
