$60.00

La Tunella Schioppettino is one of the true indigenous grape varieties of the Colli Orientali del Friuli. The grapes, which are extensively thinned out in June, are strictly hand-picked and laid in small cases for slight raisining. The Scioppettino is fermented using indigenous yeasts and is left on its skins for 20 days. The Scioppettino is matured in 500 liter French oak tonneaux for almost two years.

La Tunella Scioppettino is a generous and decisive wine with mouth filling velvetiness and perfectly amalgamated tannins. 

We recommend decanting the Scioppettino a short time before tasting. You could pair this wine with strong flavours. Excellent with Roast meats, wild feathered game and strong cheeses.
