The Bastianich Winery, founded in 1997 consists of 35 hectares (90 acres) of vineyards. All of the vines are in the Friuli Colli Orientali DOC area in 2 distinct climatic zones. The deep connection of The Bastianich Family stretches back decades and generations. From early connections with the greatest winemaking families in the 1970s and 1980s, to the promotion of the finest wines Friuli had to offer in their Family Resturants in New York City and beyond... Culminating in the realization of a dream to create great wines of longevity and complexity in their own vineyards. The Bastianich Family has been one of the greatest supporters of Friulian wines in the United States and around the world.

Tasting Notes

The uniqueness of Schioppettino is famous, just like its distinct flavor characteristics and its deep connection to a limited and rather specific area in Friuli. Schioppettino is a wine substantially linked to its origins, but looking to the future, by virtue of its identity and distinctive personality. The color is a delicate ruby red with hints of violet. The nose what we might consider its 'signature', spicy notes (black pepper, especially) emerge with clarity and incredible definition. This spice, accompanied by sweet, lithe, delicate fruit, makes this wine’s immediate impact one of great elegance. On the palate the silky texture shows balance and elegance of the first order, with fine tannins and acidity. Its varietal character is evident, although this balance and this harmonious play on the palate seems more like a Pinot Noir than the rough, typical style of native Friulian red classics.
