Schioppettino di Prepotto
Our Schioppettino di Prepotto, obtained from bountiful vines with large, crunchy grapes, is a wine of rare elegance, with well-balanced aromas and flavours. It is our terroir wine, which identifies the sub-area of the Eastern Friuli Hills, and expresses its best aspects in its very name, Prepotto.
The vines are trained using the Guyot technique in our terraced vineyard, located on two sides of the hill; one facing south-east and one - perfectly suited to the cultivation of this variety - facing east. The soil is a hillside Flysch, very rich in water and minerals, from which we obtain red wines with excellent structure, which are at the same time extremely refined and elegant.
The harvest takes place from mid-October, and is carried out strictly by hand. Our Schioppettino is first vinified in wooden casks (French oak), then aged for around 18 months in barriques, and finally in the bottle.
Our Schioppettino di Prepotto, like all Pitticco wines, is produced according to the standards of organic production.
