Schiopetto Ribolla Gialla Fireman's Line 2019
Schiopetto Fireman's Line is the entry range from this top Italian white winemaker. The pristine, unoaked Ribolla Gialla, with floral notes of orchard fruits and white almond, is a great example of this variety.
Mario Schiopetto founded his eponymous estate in the 1960s and pioneered many modern winemaking techniques in the region. That continues today as the estate makes some of the finest white wines being produced in Italy today. The slightly higher production and lower priced “Fireman’s” or more elegantly “del Pompiere” range references the fireman’s hostelry in which Mario grew up as a child. This is the Ribolla Gialla from that range, giving a good example of this local Friulian variety. A lifted nose of melon, guava, white flowers, hints of apricot with a touch of smokiness. Medium-bodied with lingering citrus freshness.
