Designation for a low-alcohol red wine from northern Italy. It is made from the American varieties Clinton or Isabella of the species Vitis labrusca. The name is derived from "Fragola" (engl. strawberry) and refers to the typical strawberry aroma (see under Foxton). It is a simple consumer wine or a wine-like drink. According to EU law, such wines may not be called quality wines and, moreover, some of them may only be produced for own consumption. Similar wines in other countries bear the names Americano or Erdbeerer (Switzerland) and Uhudler (Austria).
