2015 Schiopetto Friulano "Mario Schiopetto"

A Tribute to a Legend
May 2, 2017

 

You can accurately refer to Mario Schiopetto as a legend. He led the transformation of an entire region to one of the finest wine production zones in Italy. From his beginnings in Collio Friuli, Mario had a dedication to producing the purest and finest white wines in the world. Other producers in the area followed his lead and now the wines of Friuli have a fantastic reputation.

As a tribute to Mario, who passed away several years ago, Schiopetto has launched a new label. The 2015 Schiopetto Friulano “Mario Schiopetto” is an amazing white wine produced from the very finest south facing old vines on the property. It is principally Friulano with a small percentage of Riesling to jazz up the aromas.

2015 Schiopetto Friulano “Mario Schiopetto”:  Straw yellow with gold highlights. White peach, quince, stone, chalk and almond. Full flavored with a layered texture. Fresh and intense palate with complex balanced length.  Superb   70/bottle

Special six pack: 6 bottles of the above for a very special price of $326 (54.33/bottle)
