The wine is aged for a minimum period of 12 months in barriques and in 20 years old chestnut casks the Rubini family use exclusively for Schioppettino aging. 

The taste is dry, smooth, full bodied with elegant soft fruits flavours and fragrance; its slight herbaceousness is mellowed by liquorice and lingering vanilla tones. Schioppettino finishes with a long persistent green peppercorns back palate taste.
