Classically Elegant, Never Dull
A less known grape varietal worth seeking out
GRAPE: 100% Schioppettino ('ski-ohp-pet-tea-noh'). Also known as Ribolla Nera. Hope that clears things right up! :)
FUNDAMENTALS: Certified organic old-vine grapes from Prepotto - a prime Cru growing area. Hand harvested, all native yeast, vinified in stainless steel for freshness. Modest sulfur.
PROFILE: Dry. Medium body. Cherry, black plum, peppery spice. I share many qualities with a northern Rhone Syrah. Elegant, refined tannins. Rustic.
PAIRINGS: Game bird, meat stews, hearty cheeses, Alpine soups.
