Winemaker Notes

Bright straw yellow, with gold-greenish reflexes. 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 also as an aperitif, the wine is well matched with San Daniele ham, eggs and asparagus dishes. Interesting pairings with Asiatic food.

Pretty subtle aromas of caramel, walnut shell and lemon as well as peach skin. Full body and tangy fruit plus a sliced peach and lemon finish. Drink now.

Schiopetto  Winery Image

Aziende Agricola Mario Schiopetto is one of the oldest wine estates in the Collio area. In the rolling hills in Capriva del Friuli, in the province of Gorizia, Mario Schiopetto founded this legendary estate in 1965. The Schiopetto family's 75 acres of vineyards cover the fertile estate surrounding the former residence of the Bishop of Gorizia in Capriva del Friuli, and Podere dei Blumeri, in Oleis, not far from Capriva in the Rosazzo hills that form part of the Eastern Hills of Friuli. The Schiopetto family has been in the wine business for three generations.

Since Mario Schiopetto's recent death, his children Maria Angela, Carlo and Giorgio have demonstrated their commitment to running the family winery in the great man's spirit.

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, 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.

High-pitched and vibrant with a delicate perfume, Friulano thrives in the NE Italian region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia near the border of Slovenia. 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.
