Vinification As the Refosco dal p.r.and the Schioppettino, the history of this variety as a native of the Colli Orientali del Friuli area can be traced far back in history. The grapes, which are extensive thinned out in June, are strictly hand-picked and laid in small cases for a slight raisining. The grapes are then stripped from the stalks and gently crushed. The resulting must is fermented on the skins with indigenous yeasts for approximately 20 days.
