Schiopetto Friulano


Schiopetto Friulano


A traditional characteristic wine with a strong personality, obtained purely from Tocai Friulano grapes, historic varietal from Collio of Gorizia, planted in a well ventilated hill area where the soil is mainly clay and limestone with origins from the eocenic era. The grapes are all picked by hand, pressed in a soft pressafter which there follows a brief period of decantation in total absence of sulphur dioxide. This is followed by fermentation in stainless steel tanks under a controlled temperature. The ageing takes place on the lees for 8 months.
