Scarpetta Frico Frizzante 4pk 187ml Cans Scarpetta Frico Frizzante 4pk 187ml Cans

Sometimes wine can be a serious thing.  But sometimes wine can cut loose, let its hair down, and just have some fun – like here!  Scarpetta was founded by a couple of French Laundry alums who wanted some casual, fun, and good value wine to serve with their rustic Italian food.  The looked to Friuli, in northeastern Italy, where locals loved to drink thirst-quenching, fun, whites and reds with the local “guilty-pleasure” snack – a fried mess of potatoes, onions, cheese and salami called “Frico.”

We’ve enjoyed their Frico Bianco from bottle in the past – but put that wine in 187ml (quarter bottle) cans and give it a touch of fizz and the fun cranks up to whole new heights.  Just like Frico itself, this is a hot mess of a blend - 50% Trebbiano, 25% Glera and 25% Chardonnay – made in tank and banged into cute cans with a touch of fizz.  Ripe apple, peach and green grape fruit takes center stage with hints of fresh flowers, wet stone and spring flowers adding complexity.  Although who needs complexity – just chill, pop, and happily sip this refreshing, crisp, white on the deck, at Wolftrap, or anytime you just want to have some fun.

Scarpetta Squadra Rosso Terre Siciliane 2015 Scarpetta Squadra Rosso Terre Siciliane 2015

What happens with a bicycle-racing winemaker in Sicily meets a bunch of French Laundry alums who run an elevated casual Italian restaurant in Colorado?  In this case, yumminess ensues!  From vineyards at about 3,000 feet elevation in Western Sicily, this is rich Nero d'Avola (75%) and Nerello Mascallese made in tank - two grapes that only really shine in Sicily!  It really pops with ripe, juicy, red currant and cherry fruit layered with sweet spice and a touch of enlivening herb.  Finishing clean and very fresh, it's a fun solo sipper and a great match for any warm weather food.
