Please note, orders are processed on a first come basis. If you leave the wine in your cart for even a few minutes it might have already sold out as our stock quantity is removed when you submit the order in final, not when you add it to your cart!
You will get two emails from us with regards to your order. The first email from us only confirms that we received your order. The second email will confirm that we have enough wine to fill your order. Due to the high volume of sales there are times when the wine has sold out, but our system is still updating and shows it as available. We're sorry for any inconvenience and will do what we can to fill your order!

#1 on the list of 5 great Vermentinos from the Wall St Journal 05/14/11 - "This lovely Pigato from the Liguria region of Italy (Pigato is the Ligurian clone of Vermentino) has a wonderfully savory qualityâa nutty, almost bitter-almond-like note and lots of minerality in the bright, brisk finish." -Lettie Teague - Wall Street Journal
"Sandy / alluvial soils in near the coast, and clay / limestone soils on hillsides further in-land.
All vinification in stainless steel, temperature-controlled fermentation. On lees with regular batonnage for 50-60 days after fermentation finishes, no malolactic fermentation." -Importer
"Under Mircoâs direction the family has rebuilt the old winery and increased production, but the estate remains small and the wine is still a clear expression of the terroir. Mirco is proud to be in an area where wine estates are still family-run and most of his neighbors share his respect for traditional wines."
Massaretti lies just inland of Albenga on the Mediterranean coast, in what is probably the former riverbed of the Neva, which left a sandy alluvial soil. The area also enjoys striking diurnal temperature shifts thanks to the alternation between winds from the sea during the day and from the land at night. These two factors combine to provide the perfect home for Pigato and Rossese to develop their full aromatic potential, giving light wines that are easy to drink but more elegant and complex than you might expect."
"As with most wines from Liguria, the majority of Massaretti's production is consumed by tourist, though a small percentage is exported, mostly to Japan, where it is enjoyed alongside the Island nation's fish-focused cuisine." -Importer
