Harvest

The grapes were hand picked at the end of September with a slight over-ripening, given the climatic trend of 2013 vintage.

Vinification | Aging

In the cellar, the grapes were then selected, de-stemmed, and macerated for 10 days. Afterwards the wine has been aged in French barriques for 12 months (moderate use of new wood). Eventually, to finalize its maturation, our Schioppettino was bottled for another 5 years. This slow sedimentation process at constant temperature allowed the grapes to express their characteristics at their best, refining hints and aromas in a clear and harmonious way.

Bottling

The wine was bottled in mid-March 2015 and then aged for 5 years, entering the market in 2020.

Emotional information

Color

More or less intense ruby red, with evident violet notes that tend to decrease with aging.

Nose

The aromas of this wine range from berry fruit (wild blackberry, raspberry, blueberry) to sour cherries, spicy notes of black pepper, mint, cocoa, licorice, tobacco and vanilla, with different intensities according to aging.

Palate

On the palate it’s dry, soft and round, with a great full body. There is fresh-savory vibration that supports well-integrated, velvety and pleasant tannins. The flavours consistently recall the aromas, from small red and black fruit to spicy notes, with a persistent finish enriched with herbaceous and green pepper nuances.

To be paired with

Excellent with skewered red meat, medium-aged cheeses and wild game meat. Try it with a chamois stew with currant sauce.
