2018 Schioppettino, Marco Sara, Colli Orientali del Friuli

This is fast becoming a go-to lighter red. Lovely perfume of blood orange and fresh raspberries, with a lively, wild palate, with hints of thyme and a certain smokiness. The finish is so cleansing: it has you reaching for another glass.

2018 Schioppettino, Marco Sara, Colli Orientali del Friuli
Marco Sara

Marco took over the reins of his small family estate in 2000, and immediately started bottling his own wines, where previously they had been sold off in bulk. The estate consists of just seven hectares of vines in the Colli Orientali, the hills that separate Italy from Slovenia. He converted the estate to organic viticulture in 2005, and using indigenous yeast and simple winemaking, he makes pure, vibrant expressions of local grape varieties.
