I had no expectations going in for this one— I had never heard of the grower or the varietal (Schioppettino - “little rifle”) before. Spicy pepper and blackberry on the nose, it manages to maintain both of those whilst adding tannins and acids for a balanced, yet very interesting wine. It’s all the more interesting for being a part of the “Vini Veri” movement: no pesticides or GMOs, or alterations to fermentation. Well worth a try.

Not exactly sure if Riedel makes a Schioppettino glass yet so a Bordeaux stem will have to do. This 2009 is full bodied; herbs and red fruit predominate but showing surprising acidity. Not much to speak of in the way of tannin.

An alive peppery nose with notes of wild boysenberry, undertones of herbs (marjoram) and vanilla. Beautiful opaque dark ruby in color. On the palate more pepper and boysenberry complimented with allspice. Underbrush and a slight tannic, dusty vanilla finish. Medium acidity with medium plus tannins.

Perfect red blend for a hearty Italian meal - pork ragu, roasted pig or Florentine steak. Hints of roses, berries and smooth tannins....
