This wine is known as “Il Mario”. It is the best quality possible of Schiopetto wines. In Gorizia, in 1954, the local Curia planted Friulano vines and some Riesling ones. It did so in the best side of the vineyard: the southern. A representative, superb wine that can only be produced in stainless steel tanks in the best vintages.
