The autochthonous variety in northeast Italy. Since 13th century where there was the first historical record of Schioppettino, people appreciate its wine continually.
Schioppettino is to Friuli just as Pinot Noir is to Burgundy. Like Pinot Noir, Schioppettino is also a difficult variety to cultivate and transform into wine. Schioppettino seems never compromise. It roots in its land boldly.
Today, this is one of the most interesting red wines in the region. It is worth collecting.
