Wine List Description
With almost 1,000 selections, the wine list is broad and progressive, featuring venerable producers from Piedmont and Tuscany, as well as more esoteric wines from Etna’s volcanic slopes.
Perfect Pairing
The succulent, vibrant Grilled Octopus with Fagioli Marinati and Spicy Limoncello Vinaigrette is perfectly framed by the lithe texture of the Laura Aschero’s 2010 Pigato.
Riot-Worthy Dish
The Beef Cheek Ravioli with Black Truffle, Crushed Duck Livers and Browned Butter is decadently rich, deeply flavored and unctuous, and is best paired with Zyme’s 2007 Valpolicella Classico Superiore.
