Fresh, grapey aromas lead to ripe and tangy red- and black-cherry flavors shaded by hints of butter and nutmeg. It's a well-concentrated, medium-bodied but mouth filling wine that's light in tannin and big on fruitiness. JIM GORDON

Schioppettino (pronounced [skjoppetˈtiːno]; meaning "gunshot" or "little crack" also known as "Ribolla Nera") is a red Italian wine grape grown predominantly in the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region of northeast Italy. The grape is believed to have originated between Prepotto and the Slovenian border, where records of the Schioppettino wine being used in marriage ceremonies date to 1282. The grape was nearly lost to extinction following the late 19th century's phylloxera epidemic when vineyard owners decided against replanting the variety in favor of French wine grapes like Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon blanc, and Merlot. Some isolated plantings continued to exist until a 1978 European Union decree encouraged its planting in Udine.     source WIKIPEDIA
