A small family estate where Vanni and Massimo Duri (father and son) produce some of the most sought after wines in Italy, these are not mainstream and the main attraction is Schioppettino and the uncompromising way that this is made. Vanni is the fourth generation making wine here, until 1998 it was mostly sold in bulk and it was only Massimo entered the family business that the decision was made to bottle their entire production.
The family farm just five hectares, everything is by hand and no synthetic chemicals are used. The planting are the local Schioppettino, Refosco, Ribolla Gialla and Friulano, there is also Pinot Nero, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Broilo’s winemaking style predates the natural wine movement: indigenous yeasts, no filtration or clarification and the use of old barrels, it is a very successful way to handle the local grapes.
Prepotto has a long history of red wines, it is known as the home of Schioppettino which finally seems to be getting some attention from the outside world, there are only twenty five hectares of it so don’t expect to see it in Tesco.
