Bruna Pigato U Baccan 2016
The iconic Ligurian Pigato. Translating as "the boss", U Baccan is revered and highly sought after for its anarchic refusal to conform, its flavours fluctuating like the shifting of the sands from vintage to vintage, and as the pinnacle of Pigato. Vines are over 60-years-old, the wine is fermented and aged in old Austrian acacia barrels and the 2013 vintage is salty, sapid and very, very long - even a little bit Burgundian on the nose. A truly spectacular wine and very much one for the enthusiast's bucket list.
