The color is brilliant ruby red with a moderate transparency. The nose reveals scents of cherry and strawberry, with a slight peppery-spiciness. Medium in body, the i Clivi Schioppettino shows prominent acidity and a delicacy reminiscent of red-fruit pulp.
"The wines of i Clivi are born in Friuli in between the Collio Goriziano and the eastern hills of Udine, named Colli Orientali, where, on sunny slopes – clivi meaning “slopes” – we cultivate 12 hectares of certified organic vineyards planted with the indigenous varieties Ribolla, Friulano, Verduzzo and Malvasia, whose only international grape is Merlot, a variety which found home in this area more than a century ago. Taking care of this important heritage of old vines, aged between 60 and 80 years, it is for us a reminder of the responsibility with which we guard and we produce wine on this strip of land, giving us the chance to express two distinct D.O.C. denominations."
