2015 Venezia Giulia Schioppettino  Vignai da Duline - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant



While much Friulian wine is acidic Pinot Grigio churned out by enormous factories, a closer look reveals small-scale artisans such as Lorenzo Mocchiutti and Federica Magrini of Vignai da Duline, who skillfully craft characterful wines of great balance and harmony. The care and effort they commit to maintaining their vineyards is painstaking: organic farming takes the place of herbicide use, while methodically chosen cover crops ensure the soil is a healthy, balanced ecosystem. All their wines ferment with wild yeasts, age in used barrels, and are then bottled with little sulfur and no fining or filtration. Schioppettino is a local grape with a marvelous perfume of fresh raspberry and cracked pepper, and Duline’s bottling expresses these traits with seductiveness, a juicy deliciousness, and incredible finesse. Try serving it with creamy polenta covered in shaved parmigiano, drizzled with olive oil, and sprinkled with black pepper. —Anthony Lynch
