Davide will be offering:
Pakravan Papi – Ribellante IGT Toscana Bianco – Riesling 60% other white berry verities 40%. Pale straw yellow. Aromas of grapefruit and yellow melon. Very balanced between the freshness of citrus fruits and the softness of exotic fruits. Powerful and elegant, with a refreshing minerality and a slightly aromatic finish given by Malvasia. Excellent as aperitif, tuna fish tartare, wild smoked salmon, salt-baked sea bream, grilled swordfish.
Menicucci Vivi Rosato Toscana IGT – Syrah & Vermentino. Soft pink, delicate, elegant notes of citrus and white flowers. Delicate structure, refined, peaks of minerality and a rich finish.
Cantine Federiciane Monteleone Gragnano Rosso Penisola Sorrentina - Aglianico / Piedirosso. Aromatic with notes of grape & berry, earth and a hint of spice. Rich and soft in the mouth, effervescent yet dry with gentle tannins. Pair with pizza, parmigiana, roast meat & fried seafood.
Andrea Formilli Fendi Casafranca Umbria Red - Opens with a big nose of blackberry. Massive tannins are well balanced by the freshness of Sangiovese and rounded off by the denser, smoother tannins of Cabernet Sauvignon merging into a long persistent finish. Pair with cheese quiche, pasta bolognese, beef, veal saltimboca, ovenbaked veal cutlets.
