Scarpetta Friuli-Venezia Giulia IGT 'Frico Bianco' 2015
Former partners at The French Laundry, Bobby Stuckey and Lachlan Patterson joined forces and founded Scarpetta, focusing on Italy’s greatest regions and grape varieties. The 2015 ‘Frico Bianco’ is an 80/20 blend of Chardonnay and Friulano, vinified with a few hours of skin contact in stainless steel. Crisp and bright, notes of white flowers, citrus, and apple dominate on both the nose and palate-- a perfect aperitif wine!
Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Italy
Italy's northeastern-most corner, where the Slavic, the Austro-Hungarian and the 'Italian' all meet in the cuisine and the wines – including, most notably, some of Italy's greatest varietal whites.
