Livio Rotini has created a video for you to watch to demonstrate the cooking of the pasta and meat courses, you can see it here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_vIQFBLNCI . We visited this winery last year on our May Group Wine & Food trip and enjoyed the most amazing lunch in their Michelin star dining room along with their fabulous wines. Since our visit, the Montefalco Sagrantino 2015 won a Tre Bicchiere Award as one of the top 14 wines in Umbria. Sagrantino is hard to find in the USA; this red is an intense ruby red color, complex and strong with hints of blackberry jam, dried plums, and spices, great body, soft with well-balanced tannins. Let it breathe an hour before dinner! This wine can age for 15 to 20 years!
Hope you can join us for another fun night!
Call Bobbi on 610-209-5409 if you would like to participate, and you can pickup the complete package on Saturday around noon or after. We will provide all details in an email of how to join the virtual video wine tasting through Zoom. It will be another entertaining and fun evening!
