A true standard-bearer of Friuli wine located in the rolling hills of Capriva del Friuli, Schiopetto is one of the oldest estates in Collio. It owes its fame to the late Mario Schiopetto, the pioneering winemaker who ushered in a new era in Italian wine starting in the late 1960s. By modernizing production methods he arguably changed the face of white wine in the country.
I still remember first meeting the late Schiopetto in the 1980s and marveling at the clarity and brightness of his whites. That style continues today and seems to be on its way to a new level since the estate’s change of ownership to Emilio Rotolo, who also owns the Friuli winery, Volpe Pasini.
Look out for the new single-vineyard wine produced here simply called “M” — it’s an amazing white underlying the superb and unique character of the grape friulano in the region.
