- Istriana, 2007
Tasting notes: Straw yellow color, herbal and floral nose, dry with nice unctuousness to it, slightly tangy “sea” taste with lingering honey notes. Nice match to the fish entrée (lisette with eggplant caviar, slice of turnip crisp with tampenade).
- Giacomo Grimaldi, Barbera dAlba, 2007
Tasting notes: Medium intensity ruby red color, very red fruit (cherry) nose, supple tannins and nice fresh acidity…good with the ballottine of lamb and lentils with lime sauce dish.
- Dominique Gentile, Rappu, Vin de Liqueur from Corsica
Brick red color, nose orange rinds and figs, sweet full bodied wine, similar in style to a tawny port. Very nice with the cream of chestnut cannelloni dessert.
Although Mary and I were anticipating more French wine selections, it was a welcome surprise to taste these wines which were definitely enhanced by the food pairings.
I highly recommend this restaurant, it’s worth the visit.
