Schiopetto Friulano 2018
Intensely aromatic nose of pear and apricot with hints of almond and wildflowers. On the palate it is full-bodied, but fresh, with flavors of stone fruit rounded out by a clean, mineral quality.
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
Aromas of sesame leaves, lemon zest, coriander, white pepper and paprika. Full-bodied, dense and, at the same time agile. Hints of olive oil and green olives. Citrus fruit, too.
Aromas of hazelnut, acacia flower, honey and white stone fruit shape the nose on this elegant white. On the savory, focused palate, bright acidity accompanies mature Bartlett pear, botanical herb and a hint of graphite before an almond finish.
The Schiopetto 2018 Collio Friulano opens to a simple and linear bouquet with citrus and orchard fruit, all backed by a decisive mineral note that recalls crushed oyster shell or sea breeze. Those salty tones add to the overall favor and intensity of this easy white wine to pair with fried shrimp or calamari rings.
