Schiopetto Blanc des Rosis 2010


SKU 08473


This wines is derived from a complex combination of grape varietals: Friulano, Sauvignon, Pinot Bianco and Pinot Grigio. Blanc des Rosis represents an elegant and all embracing wine, a historic blend made by the estate in 1986 born from the express desire to represent in a single wine the richness of the area of origin. The harvest is manual, the press soft and decantation in total absence of sulphur dioxide. Fermentation and ageing take place for 8 months in stainless steel. Food Pairings: Excellent for aperitif, perfect with shellfish and all first pasta courses; when aged interesting contrast with creamy mushroom dishes.

Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Blanc des Rosis comes across as one-dimensional and heavy. There is plenty of depth and muscle in the fruit, but less in the way of aromatic complexity. Perhaps further bottle age will help, but for now I am skeptical this wine will ever be in balance. Blanc des Rosis is Friulano, Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon, Malvasia Istriana and Ribolla Gialla. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2015.
