Bio Vio Marene Pigato 2022
Bio Vio is an unspoken legend in the magical Northern seaside region of Liguria, a land often struck by landslides, low yields, missed vintages and tough labor. With its extreme old world farming, intensely steep, handworked vineyards, and the resulting distinctly fresh wines influenced by the ever present Mediterranean, Liguria has become quite the Sommelier darling.
The family run estate of Bio Vio is located in the town of Albenga, a coveted spot known for producing the best quality grapes. The Vios were among the first if not THE first to produce wine here through biological organic agriculture (hence the name...), Aimone Giobatta Vio tends to the 30+ year old vines and minimal intervention winemaking with the help of his 2 daughters. Their classic Pigato is produced from vines at an average age of 40 years and it is 100% stainless steel fermented using only native yeasts and biodynamic viticultural practices. Very limited amounts are produced each year.
