Pigato in its soul.
A modest vineyard in Liguria's Imperia yields an impressive historical achievement linked to the local pigato grape variety, produced for the first time in six unusual versions, one of which is the very first sparkling wine made exclusively from that grape, the Metodo Classico Millesimato 2009. VisAmoris is the offspring of passion for a harsh but generous corner of earth, Liguria, Imperia. The dream seemed also a challenge: produce a unique wine from a special area that would marry together colours, flavours, fragrances, emotions... In 2004, Rossana Zappa and Roberto Tozzi, decided to make that dream reality and to commit themselves to a new adventure.
From a small vineyard in Imperia of 2,500 sq.m. on 3 levels, some 3 km from the sea, assisted by celebrated winemaker Giuliano Noè and talen-ted agronomist Piero Roseo, both passionate supporters of the project, was born in 2004 the first pigato wine: VisAmoris Domè.
The first results were very encouraging and spurred us on. We gradually purchased small parcels of land abandoned for over 30 years, but always in the same area, since we wanted to develop the full potential of one terroir.
