Known as the Italian Riviera, this thin, beautiful strip of rugged land with its Mediterranean climate and poor, stony soils is dominated by hills with sheer drops that almost fall straight into the sea. These steep elevations make vine growing a challenge, resulting in scattered vineyards with limited production. In some areas, the slopes are so steep that the land has to be cultivated by hand.
Sitting at almost 1,000 feet above sea level, Colle dei Bardellini enjoys a desirable south-west exposure in a Mediterranean climate surrounded by the floral maritime vegetation of the region, such as maritime pine, from Pittosporum, and wild herbs. The mild weather creates the ideal conditions for viticulture, and the vibrant aromas of the surrounding hills and the saline sea breeze seem to inspire the local varieties to great aromas that cannot be found in any other region.
Colle dei Bardellini is one of the best producers of the native Ligurian grape Pigato. The nose displays a bouquet with notes of flowers and aromatic herbs: sage, myrtle, rosemary and thyme. The palate is rich, yet delicate with notes of marine shells.
