"Bright, deep ruby-red. Captivating aromas of boysenberry, blueberry and balsamic reduction. Dense, sweet and savory, with exotic flavors of candied blackberry, wet stones and sandalwood. Sneakily concentrated, complex and enlivened by perfectly integrated acidity, this lovely example of Schioppettino finishes long with a refined mouthfeel but also palate-staining depth. Drinking window: 2018-2029. 93 points

Ronchi di Cialla, one of Italy’s best wine estates, has long been under the radar, but also a fantastic source of exceptional wines made from the region’s native grapes. The Rapuzzi family deserves the historical credit of having saved (thanks also to the help of the Nonino distilling family), the Schioppettino grape variety from oblivion. The Verduzzo and the Picolit are also exceptional wines, and like all of this estate’s output very typical of the cool mesoclimate of the Cialla area, not far from Prepotto. The fresh Ribolla Gialla brims with early appeal and the Refosco del Peduncolo Rosso is also refined and ageworthy, and not to be missed."
