Scarpetta Frico Rosso
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. When we speak of "food wines" in the wine world, those wines that go great with food, this is exactly what we are talking about.
