Bright straw yellow with golden highlights. Open-knit and ripe, with a full-blown nose of yellow plum, candied pear and peach nectar. Broad, rich, spicy and tactile, with flavors similar to the aromas. The finish is long and saline. This is almost Pinot Grigio-like in its size and also speaks of the warm Capriva microclimate (it clocks in at 14.5% alcohol compared to the Volpe Pasini Pinot Bianco wine – both the Volpe Pasini and the Schiopetto estates are owned by the Rotolo family – which is made from grapes grown in the cooler Torreano subzone of the Friuli Colli Orientali: that wine sports only 13% alcohol).
