Schioppettino

A native grape variety of Friuli, also known as Ribolla Nera, it is probably native to the Prepotto area.
The origin of its name is uncertain, however, as it is onomatopoeic it probably stems from the fact that Schioppettino, with its high fixed acidity, after being bottled when young and having completed malolactic fermentation in the bottle, became slightly fizzy, giving the impression, to the ear and the palate, of crackling due to the carbon dioxide developed. It is also believed that the word “schioppettare” derived from chewing ripe grapes, with their characteristic taut and thick skin.
Currently, the grape variety is mainly grown in the municipality of Prepotto, in the sub-zone known as “Schioppettino di Prepotto”, recognised by the Ministerial Decree of June 2008.
