2013 Vie Di Romans Flors Di Uis, Friuli Isonzo, Italy
Pairing Notes: Clean, crisp, and refreshing is what you’re about to encounter with this delicious white wine from northern Italy. It starts with beautiful aromas of green apple blossom and Granny Smith apples that have been dusted in sweet spices. The neutral oak the wines are aged in gives this wine a good texture that will complement the Scallop dish.
2013 Gerard Seguin Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Burgundy, France
Pairing Notes: This pale red wine’s bouquet mesmerizes with crushed rose petals and dried truffles with juicy fruit to captivate. It’s the perfect complement with game, and when paired with the duck breast the vivacious fruit will come alive as the earthy roundness coats your palate. A heavenly match!
2014 Domaine Philippe Colin Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Burgundy, France
Pairing Notes: A magical experience waits for you in this glass. With captivating minerals and fruit, it’s the essence of elegance. Creamy Gnocchi with a light crisp to the outside and sitting on a bed of Beurre Blanc sauce is the perfect companion for this wine. Fruit and the delicate touch of oak make for a round combination while leaving the palate watering for another bite.
2011 Luigi Giordano Barbaresco, Piedmont, Italy
Pairing Notes: A Tavola! A great wine that should be served with meat and, without question, truffles. This gem is a complete package, with flavors galore that include potpourri and ethereal hints of spice. With firm tannins and high mouthwatering acidity, this is the perfect wine to pair with our Secondi!
