Massive pink peppercorn, raspberry bush, light thorn and subtle leather filter throughout this graceful and characterful Schioppettino. A soft core of wild herbs is worn even smoother with bottle age. Subtle, quiet and charming. Paolo Rapuzzi, of Ronchi di Cialla, began producing Schioppettino, Refosco, Picolit, and Verduzzo, 4 of the native grapes of Friuli, in the village of Cialla in the early 1970s and the estate is now one of the premier estates of Friuli. Schioppettino is also known as Ribolla Nera.
