Pizzato is one of Go Brazil’s longest standing suppliers, a winery whose Italian immigrant founder arrived in Brazil in the late 1880’s and which continues to produce wines of a consistently of a high standard. While winemaker Flavio is perhaps best known for his reds, he also makes some great whites – not least his ‘Legno’ oaked Chardonnay ( whose 2018 vintage scored 93 points in Decanter’s October 2019 edition ), for example.
We are delighted therefore to be introducing Flavio’s ‘PP Semillon’ 2018, a French varietal which his father Plinio Pizzato experimented with in the 1960’s, and which the family has now resurrected with vines planted only in 2012.
Well known Glasgow-based wine critic Tom Cannavan selected this Semillon as his ‘Wine of the Week’ (w/c 16/03/20). Read his tasting note here: Semillon
