Girolamo Dorigo Schioppettino Colli Orientali del Friuli 2009

External Review by Astor Wines & Spirits:

What's this? Why, Schioppettino, of course. One of the many great grapes indigenous to Friuli, Schiopettino makes medium-bodied red wines with floral notes and rustic acidity. Pair this with gamey foods or hard cheeses.

Girolamo Dorigo:
The Dorigo winery was created in 1966 with the purchase of two vineyards, Ronc di Juri at Buttrio and Montsclapade, at Premariacco.

The Dorigo winery was created in 1966 with the purchase of two vineyards, Ronc di Juri at Buttrio and Montsclapade, at Premariacco. These are ancient local place names, meaning the "Juri Vineyard", after the family that for generations cultivated the land before we arrived, and the "Split Mountain", because of the road that slices the summit in two. The winemaking potential of the terrain was immediately obvious, as was the fact that viticultural practices in the Friuli of the day were inadequate for our ambitions. Thus it was that we began the task of renovating the vineyards, a project that led to the introduction into the region of a completely new approach to viticulture. We adopted very high density (10,000 plants per hectare) Guyot cordon training, using French-style "enjambeur" row-straddling tractors to work the vineyards. Opening hours: from Monday to Friday: 8.30 - 12.30 14.00 - 18.30 Saturday and Sunday: advanced booking. Please contact us for a visit. Read less
