Ronchi di Cialla Schioppettino 2015

  • Sold out

The Ronchi di Cialla family has been instrumental in saving this ancient, indigenous grape variety from Friuli, which nearly suffered extinction due to war and pestilence. 

From the importer:  Aromas of white pepper and small red fruits, currants and blackberries, intriguing balsamic and undergrowth (sous-bois) notes.

Flavorful, with fruity sensations, well-balanced minerality;  fragrant and well ripe tannin. Although a wine of good structure, it has a refined and almost silky balance; it is baroque, aristocratic, of great elegance and long life; full character and racy.

Pair with traditional dishes such as roasted white and red meat; meat with light sauces;   mushroom-based dishes, medium and hard crust cheeses.
