Schioppettino (2019)


  • This out of the ordinary wine has an out of the ordinary name. On a cold winter day, the name 'Fuc e Flamis' was born, inspired by the wood fire heating the room. Schioppettino (also known as Ribolla Nera in Friuli) is characterized by notes of black fruits and black pepper. Dry and a bit acidic with medium-plus body, this delicious wine will hold up to any roasted meat.
