JACUZZI FAMILY VINEYARDS PINA ASOLO PROSECCO SUPERIORE DOCG BRUT

(laced with silver & gold powder by DelBrenna)

Lush and refreshing with apple, peach and pineapple flavors, a flowery nose and

persistent effervescence. Imported from Italy, the DOCG rating refers to its superior quality.

 

 

Antipasto

Carpaccio di Manzo con Fonduta Valdostana Tartufata

Thin slices of cured beef, drizzled with warm truffle infused

Fontina cheese sauce from Valle D’Aosta

 

LEUTA TOSCANA TAU

Italy – Tuscany – 2012

A blend of 60% merlot, 30% cabernet franc and 10% syrah aged in french barrique for a year. A little big wine. A wonderfully floral bouquet of roses and lavender with hints of raspberries. A juicy, succulent full body enveloped by velvety tannins before a sophisticated finish. The use of barrique comes across nicely but not too much.

 

 

Primo

Tortelloni alla Bolognese

Homemade large tortellini filled with imported Mortadella, braised beef and veal,

Parmigiano Regiano and nutmeg served with a traditional creamy Bolognese sauce

 

LEUTA CORTONA MERLOT 1618

Italy – Tuscany – 2011

Richly perfumed with cherry cola, herbs and spices.

Medium-bodied with a silky texture, a generous oak frame and a chewy tannin finish.

 

 

Secondo

Spezzatino di Manzo

Prime tenderloin of beef braised slowly with Mediterranean herbs,

capers sundried tomatoes and potatoes

 

LEUTA CABERNET FRANC TOSCANA 2618

Italy – Tuscany – 2013 

A ripe and slightly raisiny red with refined tannins and a juicy finish. More Loire-style than Bordeaux.

 

 

Dolce

Pastiera Napoletana

Neopolitan style ricotta tart

 

LEUTA TOSCANA LEUTA NAUTILUS SINGLE BARREL SELECT

Italy – Tuscany – 2013 

A blend of 33% Sangiovese, 33% of Syrah and 33% Merlot.

A beautiful, juicy red with plum, chocolate and berry character. Full and velvety-textured. Savory finish. I like the almost salty undertone to the ripe-cherry character.
