Nose: A heady perfume of white flowers, like jasmine and acacia, intermingles with hints of citrus zest, fresh almond, and a whiff of saline minerality evocative of the nearby sea.
Palate: In the mouth, the wine displays a lively and invigorating acidity that supports flavors of ripe citrus fruits, white peach, and a touch of Mediterranean herbs. Its mineral backbone, characteristic of the stony vineyard soils, adds depth and structure, while subtle notes of almond and herbs provide complexity.
Finish: Long and refreshing, the finish leaves an imprint of crisp citrus, a touch of stone fruit, and the unmistakable hint of sea breeze.
The 2022 Bruna Pigato Maje Riviera Ligure di Ponente is an exemplary companion to the rich and flavorful dishes of Liguria.
