Sensory profile This Schioppettino appears both intriguing and mysterious, its hue midpoint between amethyst and Bordeaux red, delicate yet dense and purple-rimmed. Elegant spices and wild berryfruit pour out, with surprising yet harmonious force, opening a true sensory adventure of nature’s scents, followed by regal notes of green and pink pepper that will be the fragrant hallmark of this wine right through to the final sip. Mulberry, blackcurrant, blueberry and walnut liqueur, geranium leaf, nigritella, and other blossoms are the principal players in this variegated symphony. In the mouth, the harmonious fusion of all its components impresses from the first sip, and the wine immediately becomes warm, beguiling, and superbly long-lingering. One encounters at the centre of the palate well-ripened fruit in syrup and liqueur bolstered by subtly astringent but glossy tannins, proceeding in delicious harmony into a pleasantly bitterish finish. It displays the medium- high fullness and weight classic to this grape variety, as well as its distinctive elegance and length.


Pairings It makes an utterly memorable partner to wild game, even in well-spiced, slow-cooked preparations, and it pairs impressively well with Alpine-style cheeses and with the more classic organ dishes, such as “fegato alla veneziana”.
