  "Strawberry" is a generic term in much of Europe referring to the taste of labrusca grapes. Uva Fragola may be a specific hybrid, but in many places it's often the old American "Isabella". Concord is often described as having a strawberry flavor in parts of Europe.

  Now here's a grape that's popular in Italy as a dessert grape. In Italy it's known as "Uva Fragola" which translates to strawberry grape. According to an Italian freind that visits italy frequently told me that this grape taste more like a ripe strawberry.
  A gardener in northern italy near Genova grows this grape. He mentioned that Strawberry grape is a hybrid between american and european grape. It's very vigorous and productive. Disease resistance as well, producing red color grapes. It's illegal to produce wine made from Strawberry Grape in Italy. I'm not sure why.
  Here's a discription from a UK nursery source:
  "STRAWBERRY GRAPE (also known as ‘Fragole’). This is an unusual variety, because its flavour is strawberry-like. The fruit is mauve and is very prolific either in greenhouse or indeed quite successful outside. Is a strong grower and makes good fruity wine."
  Does anyone grow this grape in the US?
