More about this wine from Abruzzo, Italy
This wine takes its name from a card game commonly played in Italy. Scopa means "to sweep" because of the way you clear the board of cards. These games often take place on the street and lively conversations about life are almost as much a part of the game as the cards. Scopa also has a slang meaning in parts of Italy, meaning to have a casual night of meaningless love with someone... Of course the Italians have a word for that.

Whether keeping it "casual" or playing cards, this wine is everything you want from a classic region of Italy. Fermented in temperature controlled steel tanks at cool temperatures, it highlights the bright fruit character classic to this varietal. Full of raspberry, red apple, tart cherry and soft tannin, this wine is ready for whatever your taco night has in store.
