Andis Wines – A Shioppettino To Remember

Published May 12, 2021

Andis Wines

Ever heard of an Italian grape called Shioppettino? Andis Wines makes one with brilliant typicity.

The Shioppettino’s lovely purple color with a brilliant garnet rim lured me in. One sniff of fresh raspberry, fresh cut lawn and plum smelled like a cacophony of characters. I’m not usually a fan of forest floor but a tiny whiff of bell pepper in this wine was not enough to overpower; instead it balanced the mix of red and blue fruit while the petrified forest lengthened the depth of greenery and earth. What’s most prominent is the big bold blueberry profiles in this unique wine. The blueberry is wide, reaching the deep pockets of your cheeks.

Good news: Andis’ Shioppettinno is 15% alcohol, unless that’s bad news for you or your friends…If that seems high for you, let it breathe a second day and those wild forest notes turn to cinnamon with a mix of spices like sage, oregano, allowing other layers to emerge. Delightful!
