Schioppettino by Sirch has its cradle in the Prepotto area, where the climate, soil and local culture have given life to a real terroir. Indigenous variety par excellence, it stands out for its class, its elegance, its brushstrokes of spicy scents. So much so that it is defined as the Friulian Pinot Noir. In 2008, the Schioppettino di Prepotto sub-area was established - within the Friuli Colli Orientali Doc - consecrating it as a real grand cru. It is a wine that makes refinement and elegance its hallmarks. A gentle red yet capable of achieving excellent complexity thanks to a precious balance between smell and taste. This is confirmed by its excellent aromatic persistence at the end which takes up the spicy tones.


Schiopettino by La Tunella is one of the vines of sure indigenous origin of the Colli Orientali del Friuli. Short period of withering and fermentation with maceration on the skins, then moving into French oak tonneaux for about two years. It comes in a dark red dress that colors the glass by letting thick and consistent arches slide. Elegantly full and decisive aromas ranging from dried figs to walnuts, to the balsamic aromas of wood with a slight background of small black berry fruits. In the mouth it is broad and decisive: it envelops the palate with a velvety touch, however, showing itself to be compact and vigorous in its noble component of well-blended tannins. Important red, for meditation and to accompany strong dishes.
