Vigna Traverso Schiopettino 2005 Colli Orientali del Friuli DOC

From Friuli, Italy comes the Schiopettino grape once thought to be lost to extinction from the Phylloxera epidemic of the 19th century. On the nose are waves of chocolate, oak, cherries, and dried fruits set against a palate of concentrated sour cherries with a balanced acidity and dry finish. Sampled this at In Vino Wine Bar... $13 By the glass.
