Schioppettino di Prepotto
Deep ruby red in colour with purple tints. The nose displays fruity aromas of blueberry, blackcurrant and bramble that blend perfectly with the spicy notes of green peppercorn. The mouthfeel is velvety, fresh, enveloping and well balanced. Ageing it develops an elegant bouquet of autumn leaves and spices. It is a great accompaniment to rustic style dishes like those of the traditional Friulan cuisine, roasts and pot-roasts, game and mature cheeses.
