Featured Wines

Pagadebit, Nespolino, 2015
Fragrant and crisp with floral scents and a refreshing citrus character that makes this wine a great discovery for white wine lovers. With a straw yellow color and a light greenish shade, it has an intense floral perfume and a pleasant taste and is a nice pairing with the Trenette and Branzino

Malvasia “Tasto di Seta” Castello di Luzzano, 2015
Produced from 100% Malvasia di Candia grapes, this aromatic dry white wine is minerally with bright citrus aromas and lush flavors of ripe tropical fruit. It is medium-bodied with a lively, long finish and is a good match for the Tortelli and Risotto.

Lambrusco, Albinea Canali, 2013
The name “Lambrusco” comes from the Latin word lambrusca, which means “wild vines”. Produced from Grasparossa and Malbo Gentile grapes, this bright, vibrant and fruity wine recalls vino novello or Beaujolais and is typically served lightly chilled. It is a fresh and medium-bodied red brimming with aromas and flavors of bright blueberry, brambly blackberry and tart cherry on the palate with a crisp, nutty and long-lasting finish. A great match for the Pollo and Scaloppine.

Rosso, Nespolino, 2014
With an intense ruby red color, it’s a fresh and easy-drinking wine. Notes of cherry and violet, typical of sangiovese, together with herbs and chocolate aromas from Merlot. Dry and harmonious, this is a well-balanced wine perfect with the Lasagne and Scallopine.

Amaro Montenegro
Amaro Montenegro is an herbal liqueur with aromas and flavors of orange peel, coriander, red cherry and cucumber with a moderately bittersweet and citrus finish. It is a favorite Italian “digestivo” and is delicious served neat or over ice with a lemon twist.
