95pts James Suckling

White peaches and cooked apples with flint and matchstick undertones. Some iron shavings, too. Full-bodied, yet compacted, tight and fresh. Very minerally, with dried-peach, citrus and mineral undertones and a bright finish. Very solid. Drink or hold.

92pts Wine Enthusiast

Sometimes you can just smell “pretty” and this is one of those times. Wafting and almost lacy aromas of white peach, apricot and Fuji apples dance out of the glass. Hints of wet river stone and fresh herbs peek through after the wine has been opened. On the palate, the wine focuses on perfectly ripe stone fruits, wildflowers and crushed rocks. Balanced acidity keeps the wine moving forward with each sip.

Winemaker Notes

Bright straw yellow, with gold-greenish reflections. Outstanding nose, with intense aromas of pear and apricot, barely perceivable the classic almond; further aromas of wildflowers help to give more complexity. The palate is full-bodied, dynamic with an aristocratic balance deriving from an excellent fusion between of its freshness and marine notes, together with its match of aromas to the nose and mouth.

Food Pairing : Excellent as an aperitif, the wine is well matched with San Daniele ham, eggs and asparagus dishes.

Winery Notes

Aziende Agricola Mario Schiopetto is one of the oldest wine estates in the Collio area and a leading light of the wine industry in Friuli. In the rolling hills in Capriva del Friuli, Mario Schiopetto founded this legendary estate in 1965 making new and highly controversial wines using stainless steel that would eventually inspire the entire Italian wine industry. The Schiopetto family's vineyards cover the estate surrounding the former residence of the Bishop of Gorizia in the Rosazzo hills that form part of the Eastern Hills of Friuli. Gradually Mario’s children, Maria Angela, Carlo and Giorgio joined him in running the business, carrying on his project with sensitivity and respect, with love of tradition and real passion. In April 2014 the business passed into the hands of the Rotolo family who intend to maintain intact Mario’s mission and productive philosophy for the sake of continuity.
