Schioppettino DOC – Friuli Colli Orientali 2017

Local grape variety almost lost to extinction following the phylloxera epidemic of the late 19th century when vineyard owners decided against replanting the variety in favour of  French wine grapes. It went out of fashion and almost lost. Carefully processed produces a good bodied red wine with a very pleasant bouquet.

Vintage: 2017
Color: intense ruby red.
Bouquet: deep aromas of wild berries and raspberry.
Taste: slightly sour, hint of tannin, full flavour.
Serving suggestions: served at room temperature it is perfect with cured meat and Pizza, slightly chilled is a great match with fried fish.
