Ronchi di Cialla, Schioppettino 2015 (Schioppettino)

RRP £37.95

Schioppettino was an illegal variety saved from extinction in the late 1970s. Today, it makes one of Italy’s greatest mid-weight reds, with an uncanny ability to age, the best examples increasing in bottle value over time. The Rapuzzi family deserves credit for bringing Schioppettino back to everybody’s attention: theirs is a masterpiece of grace and refinement, offering a panoply of red- and dark-berry aromas and flavours enhanced with intense green-peppercorn and violet nuances.
