Did you know that there’s another “P” in Italian bubbly? Introducing Pignoletto—the latest (must-have) new sparkler from The Boot.

Pignoletto is still super-rare in the U.S. (many sommeliers don’t even know about it) but you’ll be drinking ahead of the curve, thanks to our friend, and third-generation winemaker, Daniele Artioli.

Daniele crafted Pignello with Grechetto Gentile grapes—affectionally called pignoletto because the bunches resemble pigna (pinecones) found in local vineyards—like the those he once worked with his grandfather. And just like his nonno taught him, he’s put serious care and attention into this elegant bubbly. It's surely paid off, too—winning a 90-point, double-gold medal from leading wine guide Gilbert & Gaillard. Here's the judges' take: "Brilliant golden hue with [tiny] bubbles. The nose is charming and melds yellow fruits with spring-like scents. Lovely sensations of breadth and harmony on the palate. Aromatic intensity is nicely bolstered by very well-integrated effervescence."

Pignello is light and fresh, with a delightful stream of bubbles, expressive floral aromas and ripe, orchard-fruit/lemony flavors. Made in a deliciously dry, crisp style, it’s very food friendly and ready to add sparkle to any occasion. If Prosecco is the Goliath of Italian fizz, then Pignoletto is the David. (And we all know how that story ended.)

Here’s another great reason to buy: since Pignoletto isn’t well-known yet in the U.S., the value simply can’t be beat. So move over, Prosecco. Pignoletto is coming for your crown…
