What is Scarpetta?

Years ago our travels took us the northeastern Italian region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia. A passion for creating wines from this unique region led us to expanding into all of Italy. True to Italian traditions, part of everyday meals include drinking good wine, great conversation, and little moments of celebration. Scarpetta was created as an homage to this lifestyle. Scarpetta refers to a small piece of bread used to soak up the last bit of delicious sauce on your plate that you can't possibly leave behind.

Italy is as diverse in its wines as it is in its cuisine, which is why we've developed a passion for combining regional wines with provincial recipes. There's an old food and wine pairing motto that says, “if it grows together, it goes together.” Our hope is that Scarpetta wines will bring this story of the Italian table to life. Our wines are meant to be enjoyed with good food, but more importantly shared — from special occasions to everyday adventures.

Tuscany has had a love affair with the Sangiovese based blends for centuries. While Sangiovese is planted all over central Italy, it reaches its highest highs in Tuscany. Frico Rosso is based on a blend of Sangiovese and small amounts of the indigenous grapes Canialolo, Ciliegiolo, and Colorino. This is the perfect balance of crisp tart cherry and the wonderful herb notes found in great Tuscan red wine. Frico Rosso pairs extremely well with grilled meats, hard cheeses and salami.

Always Make Time to Enjoy Life!
Whether you're exploring Italy or trying a new recipe in the kitchen, your own discovery of inspiration awaits. Buon appetito!
