Anchisa from the Azienda Agricola Ramoino
Pigato wine for ageing
Anchisa is the name of the Pigato Superiore wine, branded by us at the Azienda Agricola Ramoino, and Anchisa is an ancient dialect word, not particularly used, which defines a traditional tool used by Ligurian peasants. An ancient tool which, driven into the ground, was used as a support to beat and straighten the blade of the scythe.
Because the bond with the land is also found in words, in the language, in the dialect.
Pigato Superiore Ramoino
A Pigato Superiore which represents the evolution of this traditional wine from the Riviera Ligure di Ponente. A fragrant, fruity, soft white wine, capable of improving with ageing, thanks to its alcohol content and to processing in the cellar. Anchisa is a Pigato Superiore wine which does not distort the tradition of Pigato, but enhances its characteristics, making it an ideal companion for fish dishes, but also for Ligurian first courses, such as pesto or ravioli with rabbit sauce, vegetable pies, fried fish, squid, vegetables.
A glass of Anchisa contains all the perfumes of Liguria’s hillside, kissed by the sun and by the salty sea wind which carries the stories of the Mediterranean Sea.
