History Schioppettino has been in viticultural use since at least the 13th Century. It remained popular in Friuli right up until the mid-1800s, when it was struck hard, first by the arrival of oidium from the Americas in the 1850s, and then by the phylloxera epidemic of the 1860s. Whatever hopes the variety had of being revived at this time were soon dashed by the two World Wars, during which those responsible for tending the vines were called on to abandon their vineyards and fight. By the 1960s there were less than 100 Schioppettino vines left in existence, scattered all over eastern Friuli. Salvation came in the early 1970s, when Paolo Rapuzzi founded the Ronchi di Cialla winery, and began seeking out native Friulian grape varieties for his vineyard. By this time, the variety was so long-forgotten that it was neither recognized nor permitted for use by Italian wine law.
Features ampelographic Leaf: medium, pentalobata, top leaf glabra. Bunch: rather large, cylindrical, elongated, with one or two clearly visible wings, on average tight. Acino: sub-round or almost elliptic; Blue-black peel, prunus, rather thick, durable.
Features wine Young people are fresh wines, which express a fragrant scent of berry fruits such as raspberries, raspberries and blueberries, and then evolve thanks to a good acidity towards lighter bouquet sensations with a floral nose and violet in the foreground followed by more aromas I decided to moss. Typically, they are colored wines, dark, but not very alcoholic, however, with a good vinous body and a tannic texture light.
Notes The name is likely to be chilled, probably due to the fact that the wine of high fixed acidity, bottled young, completed the fermentation in the bottle, becoming slightly sparkling, giving the impression that the carbon dioxide crackled. From here the sound, almost onomatopoeic, to "scratch".
