Grape: Schioppettino 100%
Schioppettino is a wine of elegance.
It has notes of green pepper, spices, and slight hint of wild berries. The tannins are low, and overall a very well-balanced wine in flavor.
Schioppettino was consumed by nobility in the 1200s, which suggests its antiquity. Although considered an antique wine,
