Splendido Vini! The Beautiful Beverages of Rustic Italian
While we tend to talk about the foods featured on our Rustic Italian menu, the beverages that accompany them are just as important...
Terre Primitivo, Sicily, Italy, 2010 6.50/30.
Subtle elements of oak, earth, herbs, and black pepper accompany generous raspberry and blackberry elements.
Di Majo Norante Sangiovese, Molise, Italy, 2011 6.50/30.
The premiere grape of Italy with aromas of woodland berries, violets, and sweet spices that crescendo to a supple palate of ripe fruit.
Allegrini Valpolicella Classico, Veneto, Italy, 2011 8.25/35.
A youthful, medium-bodied blend with luscious aromas of cherry, herbs, chocolate and mocha.
Stellina di Notte Pinot Grigio, Venezie, Italy, 2011 6.50/29.
Alluring aromas of melon, kiwi, & golden apple; this wine is smooth and silky on the palate and offers lush tropical and citrus flavors balanced by a pleasant minerality.
We invite you to try these wines either by the glass, bottle, or as a Flight. In addition to these featured wines, we also have some Italian mainstays on our wine list that are available by the bottle, including Mionetto Prosecco, Gabbiano Pinot Grigio, and Melini Chianti.
Or, try an Italian cocktail... If you're in the mood for an Italian cocktail or cordial, we're featuring a classic Italian cocktail this month--the Negroni--which is made from dry gin, bitter Campari, and sweet vermouth. The bitterness of this drink is an acquired taste, but it is a classic go-to for some. And if the Negroni isn't your style, try some quintessential Italian cordials to finish your meal: Amaretto, Limoncello, Frangelico, and Sambuca. You can order them solo or as a Tasting Flight. Salute!
