Fresh & Elegant
This is a Schiopetto classic, as this white wine has been produced since 1967. Aligned with the original ideologies of Mario Schiopetto all harvest is done manually and with newer technologies now fermented in stainless steel. This allows for the Pinot Bianco to shine with its creamy texture but find balance from the stainless steel fermentation adding refreshing peachy-pear notes and lemon zest to the palate. The nose is rich with raw almond, ripe fruit and wet gravel. Refinement is on lees for 8 months adding the well known complexity of Schiopetto whites.
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.
