Gigante’s Schioppettino vines are some of the oldest of the area, they grow in a special untouched soil on the hill, which Adriano fertilized with organic manure. These are the original hybrid vines of Pocalza (Ribolla Nera). No chemicals are used to help grow Adriano’s grapes because they are so old and strong that they thrive without any help. Despite coming from a very low yield, the grapes are so big and healthy that they seem to be exploding. The high acidity and sugar levels allow Adriano to dry a selection of the grapes, improving the grape’s natural sugar concentration and giving his Schioppettino wine particular and complex aromas.

All this results in a unique Schioppettino wine, which perfectly reflects the old Friuli winemaking tradition, a symbol of the terroir of the North East of Italy. Every year Gambero Rosso awards this Schioppettino I.G.T. as the best of Italy.
