Our featured wine of the week: september 18th
Scarpetta's Timido Vino Spumante Brut Rosé
Scarpetta is the brainchild of two of the food and wine industry’s best in Master Sommelier Bobby Stuckey and Chef Lachlan Patterson, both of Frasca Food and Wine in Boulder, CO. Their mutual obsession with the culture of the Friuli-Venezia Giulia area of Italy led them to collaborate on their James Beard award-winning restaurant Frasca, and their delicious line of Scarpetta wines. The ‘Timido’ Vino Spumante Brut Rosé is made from Glera (the same grape used in Prosecco) plus a little seasoning of old vine Pinot Nero (Pinot Noir). The grapes are sourced from Valdobiaddene and from Friuli, respectively, then fermented in stainless steel and made in the same way as Prosecco—Metodo Italiano (aka Charmat Method). This textured and floral bubbly rosé is the perfect way to celebrate the end of summer, with notes of strawberry and herbs to lure us into a refreshing autumn.

Our wines are often more subtle and earthy than the fruit-bombs that you find on most supermarket shelves but we believe that once you unlock their charms you will be hooked for life. And since these Old World wines were made on smaller vineyards that have existed for generations they also offer quite a great bang for the buck. There are some amazing New World wines out there but they tend to cost a great deal more than we want to charge our customers. We want to be the wine portal for people of all ages and incomes who are new to wine and want to explore without breaking the bank.
