Question: What is Pignoletto?
Answer: A grape variety grown mainly in central Italy around the Emilia-Romagna region. In the sub-area of the Bologna hills the Pignoletto Classico in 2011 received DOCG certification with tighter vineyard production restrictions. It is producing some increasingly popular less expensive white wine of the same name in several styles including still and frizzante. The herbal floral aromatics together with apple fresh acidity and a slightly bitter finish pair well with their seafood, pork dishes and pasta ragus.
