Description

Mario Schiopetto, son of Angela and Giorgio, was born in 1930 and grew up in the Fireman’s Hostelry which belonged to the family, experiencing in first person the life of a fireman and then that of a lorry driver. For years he accompanied and helped his father to select the wines for the Hostelry, eventually running it himself after the demise of his parents.  Guided only by his personal taste and his love for wine, in 1963 Mario started to dedicate his time to the production and in 1965 brought out his first “Tocai”. Thus giving birth to the era of modern white wine in Friuli and transforming the conception of Italian white wine.

A traditional wine with characteristic  and personality, obtained purely from Tocai Friulano grapes, historic varietal from Collio of Gorizia.  The grapes are all picked by hand, pressed in a soft press followed by a brief period of decantation without the use of sulphur dioxide.  Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks under a controlled temperature. The Wine is aged on the lees for 8 months.

Straw yellow in colour with intense aromas of pear and apricot with notes of almond, further aromas of wildflowers help to give more complexity. Full-bodied and balanced with and excellent freshness to match the aromas to the nose and mouth.
