Hints of lemon & lime skin with other citrus (grapefruit, orange) blending in. Nice, fresh lip-smacking acidity with persistent bubbles. When you taste, you will see what we mean. A great bargain!

Winery Notes

2015 Scarpetta Frico Bianco

This zippy Italian white blend is crisp, clean, and medium-bodied with aromas of fresh white flowers and flavors of tart apple and pear. The wine stainless steel aged, preserving the fresh fruit and zippy acid on the finish.
Merch Notes

2014 Scarpetta Frico Rosso, Tuscany (Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon)
On Sale $8.99
This red blend is primarily Sangiovese, which comes through immediately with the aromas of cherry, cranberry, and a hint of spice. On the palate, the subtle oak comes across, lending soft tannins and an earthy body with notes of…plum pie? Is that a thing?
Merch Notes

2014 Scarpetta Sauvignon Blanc
On Sale $21.99
This wine comes from organic vineyards! Aromas of kaffir Lime, apricot and quince. The hidden element of Colli Orientali Sauvignon Blanc is its overly herbaceous notes and beautiful stone fruit aromatics. On the palate, it’s medium bodied with a big attack of citrus – lime, candied lemon with stone fruits (apricot and peach). A firm spine from the medium + acidity.
Winery Notes

2014 Scarpetta Friulano
On Sale $21.99
Aromas highlight the classic green almond note of Friulano. Peach skin, ripe strawberries (yes, strawberries in white wine!) On the palate, it’s a ripe, medium bodied Friulano with brisk acidity, reconfirming the flavors of green almond, peach and apricot.
Winery Notes

2014 Scarpetta Barbera
On Sale $14.99
Aromas of crushed berries and plums. Hint of earth and porcini mushrooms. On the palate, it’s a medium bodied red wine with low tannins but bright acidity, giving it wonderful balance.
