Winemaker Notes

Bright straw yellow, with gold-greenish reflections. Outstanding nose, with intense aromas of pear and apricot, barely perceivable the classic almond; further aromas of wildflowers help to give more complexity. The palate is full-bodied, dynamic with an aristocratic balance deriving from an excellent fusion between of its freshness and marine notes, together with its match of aromas to the nose and mouth.

Excellent as an aperitif, the wine is well matched with San Daniele ham, eggs and asparagus dishes.

James Suckling
Lots of peach-pit, almond, cantaloup and melon aromas follow through to a full body with creamy texture and a flinty finish.

Schiopetto Dr. Emilio Rotolo and his wife Rosa Winery Image
Aziende Agricola Mario Schiopetto is one of the oldest wine estates in the Collio area and a leading light of the wine industry in Friuli. In the rolling hills in Capriva del Friuli, Mario Schiopetto founded this legendary estate in 1965 making new and highly controversial wines using stainless steel that would eventually inspire the entire Italian wine industry. The Schiopetto family's vineyards cover the estate surrounding the former residence of the Bishop of Gorizia in the Rosazzo hills that form part of the Eastern Hills of Friuli. Gradually Mario’s children, Maria Angela, Carlo and Giorgio joined him in running the business, carrying on his project with sensitivity and respect, with love of tradition and real passion. In April 2014 the business passed into the hands of the Rotolo family who intend to maintain intact Mario’s mission and productive philosophy for the sake of continuity.

Collio Goriziano Wine

Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Italy

View all products

Collio is a crescent-shaped sub region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia that hugs right up against the Slovenian border. It is perfectly situated for growing wine grapes, especially of the white variety.

The Julian Alps to Collio’s north allow the influx of cool, nighttime breezes, while the Adriatic Sea to its south regulates the region’s temperatures. The area contains flysch soils,locally known as, ponca, a layered, sedimentary rock that formed millions of years ago as continents collided under the sea. Today the flysch soils that dominate the hills of Collio provide an interesting substrate for vine roots, with measurable mineral variations within small areas. The fractured layers of flysch soils also facilitate drainage and deepening of vine roots.

The region boasts a unique set of indigenous white varieties including Friulano, Ribolla Gialla, Malvasia and the rare, Picolit. International whites—Pinot Grigio, Pinot Bianco, Sauvignon (Blanc) and Chardonnay—have also been in the area for well over 100 years. Today Collio is often associated with crisp, clean, floral and fruity whites. But in recent years, there has been a resurgence in popularity of the ancient Slovenian style of fermenting white grapes on their skins. This process retains additonal colors and phenols, producing a complex finished wine with an orange hue, warranting the term, "orange wines."

Reds are far less common but the indigenous Pignolo makes an age-worthy red, and the international varieties Merlot and Cabernet grow here as well.

Thriving in the NE Italian region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia near the border of Slovenia, Friulano makes a uniquely high-pitched and vibrant white with a delicate perfume. Extensive in the area by the early 1930s, today Friulano grows in all of the best zones and is usually, but not always, bottled as a single-varietal wine. Somm Secret— The Friulano grown today, while named for its present home of Friuli, is actually the Sauvignonasse grape, a minor cultivar that came from Bordeaux.
