Schiopetto Friulano "M" 2016 (Friuli Venezia Giulia) $75.00 (Only 48 bottles available) James Suckling 98 Vinous 94
ALERT: this is my favorite white wine of 2020
Schiopetto Winery is not only one of the oldest estates in the best subregion of Friuli, Collio, but also a true standard-bearer for the appellation at large. Situated on the rolling hills of Capriva del Friuli, the winery owes its fame to the late Mario Schiopetto, the pioneering winemaker who ushered in a new era in Italian wine in the late 1960s. By modernizing production methods and introducing new technology such as temperature-controlled stainless steel vats, he arguably changed the face of white wine in Italy.
"M" is the special project of Mario, made exclusively from a friulano plot planted in the 1950
Vivid straw-yellow with green tinges. Lime, yellow apple, nectarine and thyme on the captivating nose. Then pure, juicy and dense, with laser-like but harmonious acidity lifting and extending flavors of orchard fruit, lime and flinty notes. This wine is still very young is still super young. I see it developing and getting better and better over the next decade.
