The Schiopetto family has been in the Italian wine business for three generations. Mario Schiopetto founded this legendary estate in 1965 and was responsible for producing wines that would eventually inspire an entire generation of winemakers. Following Mario’s death in 2003, his children Maria, Angela, Carlo and Giorgio have dedicated themselves to preserving the family’s legacy. To that end, in 2009, they released a charter of excellence which outlines their commitment to the land and to honest, authentic winemaking. The family owns 75 acres of vineyards, which extend from the former residence of the Bishop of Gorizia in Capriva del Friuli to the eastern hills of Friuli, or more specifically, the Podere dei Blumeri in the Rosazzo hills. The soils of this region - called ponca - have a high percentage of limestoneclay marl, which is thought to lend the pronounced crushed mineral element to the wines. The heart of the estate is the yeast room in the winery where the various yeasts used for fermentation are grown. Selected by Wine & Spirits Magazine as Top 100 Winery of the Year in 2006, 2007 and 2009.

Rating
 Wine Spectator 89 points (Oct 15 2013)
A rich version that remains well-focused and lithe, offering notes of almond pastry and glazed apricot, with briny acidity and hints of thyme, star fruit and melon rind. Drink now through 2016. 300 cases imported. ľAN
