Wine just wakes me right up!
Mmmm jammy, delicious, spice component with cinnamon and red pepper kick. Well-balanced acidity, harmonious sips, really playin up the medium body.
Lovely. Good find at Frankly in Tribeca!
Perfect to watch The Sopranos with (apparently Schioppettino translates to gunshot). I mean come on… — 9 months ago
Love love love this light yet hearty red from the Friuli. Funk, sparkle, berry fruit. Made with an old vine grape I’ve never heard of that miraculously survived the phylloxera epidemic. — 2 months ago

While certainly the nicest Schioppettino I’ve had it’s difficult to justify the price point relative to other wines of its caliber. Medium bodied with energetic, bright red fruit, pepper, and faint earth. Well balanced fruit with juicy acidity and soft, powdery tannin. Impressive, but still needs to prove a $40 price tag. — 8 months ago
2022 spring. Dark-fruited and foresty but bright, still youthful but open — 3 months ago
A stately, well-structured red from Friuli. This one had the maturity and mellow character of a wine almost a decade old. The tannins, though no doubt softened over the years, provided enough structure to allow this schioppettino to continue ageing, even if only for a couple more years. Blueberries and vanilla were present on the nose, whereas the palate presented flavors of prunes, raisins, plums, and a hint of tobacco. Very happy to have procured this bottle; it was a great pairing for our Easter leg of lamb! 100% Schioppettino. 4/17/22. — a year ago
