2020 Ronco del Gnemiz Schioppettino
Ronco del Gnemiz is situated in Friuli in the North of Italy close to the border with Slovenia. Owner Serena Palazzolo and her partner Cristian Patat are committed to producing wines of uncompromising quality through natural viticulture, low yield and focusing on varietal purity.
The grape variety Schioppettino was almost wiped out in the early 20th century due to phylloxera . It was replanted in the 1970's after a campaign to reintroduce indigenous varieties. The grapes for this wine come from a small, .7 hectare plot, after fermentation it aged for 20 months in old oak.
A very refined and elegant wine. Medium-bodied, full of spicy red fruit, firm but fine tannins and good acidity.
