Overview of the Wine
The history of the Schiopetto winery has its origins in Capriva, where Mario Schioppetto rented the vineyards of the Curia around the Archiepiscopal Palace in 1970. Mario was able to transform old and uncultivated lands into vineyards treated in detail, until finally  the vineyards of the Curia became his property in 1989. He managed to transmit his love and passion for tradition to his children who helped him to run the company over the years. The Schiopetto winery, which is owned by the Rotolo family since 2014, continues to be the voice of the philosophy of Mario Schioppetto and gives us excellent wines.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
The wine is obtained exclusively from Sauvignon grapes, a varietal of great importance, cultivated in the areas of Sauternes and Bordeaux, from where the grapes have been imported to Friuli where they have found ideal conditions in both soil and climate. Cultivated in the hill areas, this varietal prefers fresh clay soil, it produces small bunches with grapes of medium size. The grapes are hand picked, pressed in a soft press after which there follows a brief period of decantation in total absence of sulphur dioxide. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks under a controlled temperature. The ageing takes place on the lees for 8 months.

Colour: Straw-yellow, with clear of intense green.

Aroma: Elegant fragrance with delicate floral notes accompanied by exotic

fruit flavors and citrus notes. Warm and enveloping, rich complexity.

Palate: On the palate it is very complex with green notes of mint and nettle that are interwoven with exotic and salty notes in perfect balance.
