PIGNOLO RISERVA 2009
Pignolo grapes are the most famous in the Friuli Venezia Giulia region thanks to their heritage.
The name Pignolo comes from cone shaped bunches that the grapes make. Writers left 17th Century documents speaking about the wine obtained from these grapes.
Unfortunately, by the end of the 19th century, these grapes had been all wiped out as a result of the phylloxera. Just a few vines survived on the hill located in front of Gigante Estates. With these surviving vines, the estate owner Adriano Gigante was able to cultivated his own Pignolo vineyard in the 1990s.
