Vinaria, lthe Austrian magazine of wine culture, mentions Schioppettino and Picolit by Vigna Petrussa in the article by Viktor Siegl:

(...) "Als Höhepunkt in Rot würde ich jedoch den mit satter Waldbeerenfrucht prunkenden Schioppettino von Vigna Petrussa hervorheben, der feingliedrig und pointiert beginnt, dann jedoch Saft und Kraft sowie einen beachtlichen Tanninfonds ausspielt. Vom gleichen Erzeuger stammt der einst legendäre, heute in Vergessenheit geratene Süßwein Picolit aus 2016, der im Bukett einen exotischen Fruchtcocktail realisiert und durch das perfekte Équilibre von Alkohol und Restzucker einen höchst eleganten Dessertweintypus verkörpert".

Schioppettino RiNera: 94 pts by Terroir Sense Wine Review

According to the great expert Ian D'Agata (Terroir Sense Wine Review) our Schioppettino RiNera was rated 94/100 points: "Good full red-ruby. Captivatingly perfumed aromas of raspberry, strawberry jelly, blackberry coulis, nutmeg, cinnamon, and green peppercorns. At once concentrated and broad, with suave but densely packed red fruit and sweet spice flavours and remarkable light on its feet quality. Boasts lovely almost pinot noir-esque tang and underlying mineral complexity. The close is generously ripe and seamless. Outstanding Schioppettino of which you’ll find yourself finishing off the bottle in an embarrassingly fast time, as it is absolutely irresistible. Drinking window: 2022-2030."
