More about this wine from Tuscany, 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.

This Sangiovese, a classic Italian wine grape, is easily approachable and effortless, but also over-delivers, especially for the price point. The juice is excellent for everyday, casual, not overthinking it drinking with bold tannins, sun-dried fruit, and deep red cherry notes that pair well with hearty, Italian family-style dinners like pasta w/ bolognese and meatballs. But this might be best paired with a pie from your favorite pizza place and sweatpants for a cozy weeknight hang out with a new movie.
How to drink it

Pro Tip:

Enjoying some old school Ella Fitzgerald like her classic tune They Can't Take That Away From Me while waiting on that pizza delivery... then it's jammies, Netflix, and wine.
