Complex & Bright
The Friulano grape is indigenous to Friuli and was one of the first made by Mario Schiopetto, as the first production of this Friulano was 1965. This is a full-bodied white with a savoury characteristic that is versatile with pairings and has a signature high acidity. Fermentation is in stainless steel for 10-12 days then aged 8 months then aged in moves to its final stage in bottle for a minimum of 5 months. Notes of almond, apricot and pear dominate the palate while the nose is blossomed with herbaceousness, seaweed and grapefruit. Pair this with anything from cured meats, vongole pasta, game and chicken - this is a white to be served with your mains.
About the Winery
“For me, wine is life.”
- Mario Schiopetto
Mario Schiopetto was part of a group of producers who worked from the end of the 1960s through to the 1970s to improve and modernize the methods of Italian wine production. In 1965, Mario bottled his first “Tocai” thus, giving birth to the era of modern white wine in Friuli and transforming the conception of Italian white wine forever.
