The Sciaglin is an authochthonal grape of Friuli-Venezia Giulia known in the hills of Spilimbergo from the 15th century. The origin of the name comes from “schiavolino”, meaning originating from Slavia, land beyond the Julian Alps. According to others it comes from “s'ciale” or “terraces”, that is, the positions at which the grape variety gives the best results. Today this grape is grown only in the area of Pinzano al Tagliamento and Castelnovo del Friuli. It gives a wine of great personality. Sciaglin has a white medium small, slightly oval berry with soft and slightly yellow, waxy, greenish skin. The cluster is medium-small, pyramid and provided with one or two wings. The Sciaglin vine gives a pale yellow wine with an intense and delicate fragrance, aromatic and spicy notes of elderflower, acacia, and yellow pepper. The taste is dry, warm with good acidity, full-bodied and persistent.
