Fragrant & Complex
These grapes are grown in the historic hills of Friuli laden in marly soil composed of clay, silt and mineral rich limestone. This aromatic white is harvested by hand then pressed at a low temperature with no sulphur dioxide giving rich notes of honeysuckle, jasmine and white peach with dominant notes of seashell on the nose. Aged in stainless steel for 8 months then in bottle for a minimum of 5 months giving this wine its distinct creamy richness with the perfect balance of sweet freshness.
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.
