Liguria

Liguria

Liguria is the part of Italy which is also known as representing the Italian Riviera. The region stretches from the French border down to Tuscany and is improperly and above all anchored with sun, swimming and holiday. Few know about the excellent and exclusive wines grown here. The wine area only covers 5,000 hectares in size and the complex geographical configuration with the Alps that rise straight up from the sea makes the conditions for viticulture extremely difficult. The most widely grown red grape varieties are Rossese and Ormeasco. Pigato and Vermentino are the most common white grape varieties. The exclusive and perhaps most famous Schiacchetrà from Cinque Terre are manufactured by Bosco and Albarola. The wine growing is conducted in a close to heroical manner on the high hills above the Cinque Terre. No machines make their way here and everything is done by hand. In Genova we find the Bianchetta Genovese used for the local white wine DOC Valpolcevera. Dolceacqua, close to the French boarder is probably where the best red wine (Rossese di Dolceacqua) is made. In Dolceacqua you'll also find the Pigato white wines which are of high quality with good structure.
