About the Event
Are you a lover of Italian wines? In addition to our complimentary daily wine tastings, join us every Saturday as we introduce new wines to you from all over Italy. You will taste up to 3 wines that we will choose to offer to "expand your palate" and we will share food pairing ideas too!
Linda will be offering:
DONNAFUGATA Sur Sur Grillo DOC – Brilliant straw yellow, on the nose SurSur offers a fresh bouquet with notes of white fleshed fruit (peach and cantaloupe melon) combined with scents of wildflowers and mint. The fruity notes resurface on the palate with pleasant freshness and smoothness. Matches perfectly with seafood appetizers, vegetarian first courses and roast fish.
Masca del Tacco Susumaniello Rosato IGP - Bright pale pink. The nose has sensations of red forest fruit, such as red currants and strawberries, and then gives way to a citrusy air. On the palate it is immediately very delicate, but then sapidity and freshness come through without ever losing elegance, great drinkability and versatility, and very long in persistence. Pair with seafood appetizers, prawns or scampi tartare, fish-based first courses, shellfish soups, rice and chicken salads, medium aged cheeses or simply with spaghetti tomato and basil.
DONNAFUGATA Bell’Assai Frappato DOC - With a ruby red color with violet reflections, Bell’Assai radiates intense floral notes of freesia and lavender followed by fruity aromas of strawberry and cherry. On the palate it is fresh and fragrant with a soft tannin and a pleasant return of fruity notes. Perfect to sip from a glass, it accompanies grilled vegetables, salumi and tasty fish dishes such as soups. Also excellent with tuna sushi.
