Wine director Jeremy is on vacation this week with his family in California. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t enjoy some great Italian food and wine without him!
For this week’s Thursday event, we are presenting our first-ever Wine Dinner To-Go. It’s just like our virtual wine dinners that so many of you have attended. The only difference is that there won’t be a Zoom link or a moderator. We invite our guests to reserve and pick up their food and wine between 5-7 p.m. on the day of the event.
And as always, $119 plus tax & gratuity sends you home with THREE BOTTLES of wine and a THREE COURSE DINNER for TWO.
AND… Chef Sandro is debuting his famous Orecchiette with Broccoli Raab for this event!
The wines we’ve lined up are pretty special too! The star of this week’s flight is the Torrione from the Petrolo winery in Tuscany. You may have heard of Petrolo’s legendary Galatrona 100 percent Merlot, a wine that many consider a peer to Ornellaia Masseto. The Torrione is the winery’s Sangiovese blend, which includes Merlot from the same vineyard used for Galatrona. It’s what the estate calls its “château” wine, the wine they drink at home, so to speak. With gentle oak notes and structure from the Merlot and a little bit of Cabernet Sauvignon, this is Sangiovese at its opulent best. We know you are really going to love this one.
The Chianti Colli Senesi is another recent discovery at Roma. We’ve just started serving it by the glass and we’re loving it: classic Sangiovese from the hills of Siena, a great food wine with bright fruit and earth.
But it’s the first wine that is one of Jeremy’s all-time favorites (he and his wife Tracie, as you know, are huge white wine fans). This is Sauvignon Blanc from Italy’s spiritual homeland for white wine, Friuli in northeastern Italy. Fruili’s Collio appellation, which straddles the Slovenian border, is renowned for its hilly landscape, limestone soils, and fresh aromatic white wines like this one. There’s couldn’t be a more perfect Italian Sauvignon Blanc for summer.
We’ll miss Jeremy this week but that doesn’t mean we can’t have some culinary fun without him! Thanks for your continued support and we hope you can join us.
