On the 2nd of May, Richard Sagala had the pleasure of organising a vertical tasting to a few lucky wine lovers in Canada of wines from the Italian Ronchi di Cialla estate (Friuli).
A vertical comprising of 1983-1991-1992 and 2002 Schioppettinos and a 1984 Refosco. More bottles of 1991 got served at dinner following the tasting.
Participants were delighted by the wines, and smiled when learning that in March 2019, Chinese President Xi Jinping got served a 2011 Ronchi di Cialla Schioppettino at an official function while in Rome.
In Schioppettino Veritas!
